Jacobs Creek launches new Reserve range for spring

Spring is here and with the royal wedding and two bank holidays approaching, there’s no better time to spring-clean your wine rack and refill it with some exciting new wines to celebrate the upcoming special occasions. Jacob’s Creek has launched the Reserve range of regional wines, from three key Australian wine regions - Barossa, Coonawarra and Adelaide Hills, which are perfect to try with friends and family.

You may choose the elegant, creamy Chardonnay to toast Kate and Will’s wedding or the ripe Cabernet full of cassis flavours to pair with the spectacular roast dinner you’ve cooked for your extended family.  It may be that you fancy a drop of the full-bodied and complex Shiraz to complement your unique selection of imported artisanal cheeses - whatever the special occasion, there is a Jacob’s Creek Reserve wine to match it.
 
The British have begun to appreciate the importance that regionality has in relation to our favourite foods  - oysters from Brittany, Iberico ham from Andalucía, Stilton cheese from Derbyshire, so why not apply the same idea to our wine choices too - it is becoming clear that provenance is synonymous with higher quality and wine is not an exception to this rule.
 
Regions are a hot topic in the Australian wine industry at the moment, especially as we become more interested about the provenance and varietal information of our wines. Jacob’s Creek is championing regionality in order to produce the most characterful wines from the most relevant regions.
 
It’s well known that certain grape varieties are better suited to particular regions, with grapes from renowned winemaking regions producing higher quality wines. Jacob’s Creek has captured the essence of three key Australian regions within the Reserve range to show the difference regionality makes. The soil, climate and altitude of these areas have all played a part in creating specific characteristics in the wines - these qualities make the Reserve range both recognisable and memorable.
 
The new Reserve range
includes six new varieties, each reflecting the distinct personality of each region: Barossa Shiraz 2007, Barossa Riesling 2010, Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2008, Adelaide Hills Chardonnay 2009, Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2010 and Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir 2009. They are all priced at
£9.99 and are available from major supermarkets.
 
Bernard Hickin, Chief Winemaker for Jacob’s Creek, comments: “Barossa Valley in Australia has warm, dry days and cool nights, ideal for producing rich Shiraz and delicate Riesling. In addition, Coonawarra is well known for growing great Cabernet Sauvignon, whilst the cool climate of the Adelaide Hills with its high altitude hills and valleys is perfect for producing elegant Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir wines”.
 
So treat yourself to a glass of Australia’s finest, with a drop of the new Jacob’s Creek Reserve wines; a premium range of regional wines produced in iconic wine regions of Australia, perfect to sample at your special occasions.
