The story of Jacobs Creek as a brand began not very far from Adelaide Hills, it has evolved over time to represent a timeless narrative of the nation's rich and enduring traditions in viticulture. Sparkling wines call for cooler, slow ripening mesoclimes, the chilly altitudes and undulating aspects of Adelaide Hills deliver an exceptional quality of fruit that's ideal for the sparkling style. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are separately treated to vinification and a course of malolactic to achieve a creamy mouthfeel. Secondary ferments in bottle, exposure to seasoned French oak hogsheads and a term of maturation in contact with yeast lees, builds richness and texture while infusing complexity.
Vibrant straw hues, refined effervescence. Biscuit and grilled nutty notes, the refreshing stonefruit citrus aromas of Chardonnay are in harmony with the red berryness of Pinot Noir. Creamy yeast complexity supports the fruit, generous cool climate citrus flavours are enhanced by creamyness and richness, structure and length. Finishes crisp and dry, with a deliciously lingering nutty aftertaste.
