Jacob's Creek

South Australia | Barossa Valley

James' Review

Jacob’s Creek (owned by Pernod Ricard) is one of the largest-selling brands in the world, and the global success of the base range has had the perverse effect of prejudicing many critics and wine writers who fail (so it seems) to objectively look behind the label and taste what is in fact in the glass. There is an ever-changing plethora of brands, such as Limited Edition, Private Collection, Reserve, Signature, most with a new label livery – but this shouldn’t distract from the quality of the wines. Exports include the UK, the US, Canada and China, and other major markets.

About

Jacob’s Creek™ is one of Australia’s leading global wine brands, offering quality contemporary wine styles with great varietal expression. Having earned over 8,000 medals at wine shows over the last 30 years, Jacob’s Creek wines are trusted by consumers for their genuine quality. The brand was first launched in 1976 and is named after a creek that runs through the renowned Barossa Valley wine region in South Australia. Jacob’s Creek is rooted in 170 years of winemaking tradition, which began when Johann Gramp planted the Barossa Valley’s first commercial vineyard on the banks of Jacob’s Creek in 1847. In doing so, Johann founded the Gramp & Sons business and began a history of winemaking innovation that continues today.
