In 1847, a young Bavarian immigrant called Johann Gramp missed the wine he used to drink in his home land. Instead of changing his habits, he decided to start growing grapes and attempt to make the wine himself. It was a way of adapting to a new country, but still staying true to his character. What he didn’t know was that when he planted the Barossa Valley’s first commercial vineyard along the banks of Jacob’s Creek, he was also planting the seeds of one of the most popular wine brands in the world that would be named after the waterway.  Today,  Jacob's Creek remains one of the most well known, trusted and enjoyed Australian wines around the world. It delivers fresh, elegant and great tasting wines that show true varietal character.  The philosophy of Jacob's Creek is to offer a range of wines that suit all occasions.  As a company, we concentrate on two key things: The first is continuous improvement. Every vintage we strive to improve the quality of our wines by refining our winemaking practices and continually gaining a greater understanding of our vineyards. The second is that in everything we do, at every step of the winemaking process, from the vineyards all the way through to your glass, we all work with the final destination in mind. We do it for the most important wine critic. You. Read less

Vintage Conditions: Good winter rains were recorded across all grape growing regions throughout South East Australia during winter prior to the 2010 growing season. Ideal cool to mild weather was observed during early spring. This, together with excellent soil moisture profiles, promoted healthy vine canopy development. A period of very warm windy weather was encountered during mid November which impacted on fruit set and resulted in slightly below average yields. Warm to hot weather conditions were encountered early in the season across all viticultural regions, but this was followed by milder weather from early February through to late March as the harvest progressed, creating near-perfect conditions for ripening and reducing pressure on growers and the winery. Winemaking: Winemakers regularly visited key Pinot Noir vineyards during the latter stages of ripening to select Pinot Noir parcels of a quality and style suitable for the Jacob?s Creek label. The fruit was handled in a range of ways to increase the complexity of the wine with the focus on retaining fruit freshness. Some parcels were simply destemmed and crushed to small static fermenters in the traditional fashion whilst others were destemmed only or simply transferred through to ferment uncrushed. This addition of whole berries and bunches in the ferment added an aromatic cherry like lift to the wine. Extraction during fermentation on skins was monitored to ensure gentle yet thorough extraction of colour and varietal flavour, within a framework of soft, fine tannin structure. After pressing off skins, the individual parcels were kept separate to preserve their character and personality, and provide a range of blending options to provide a soft, generously flavoured approachable style, synonymous with the philosophy behind Jacob?s Creek.
