Show Your True Character with Jacob’s Creek

By: Cresta

A couple of weeks ago the kind PR folks from Jacob’s creek sent me a selection of Jacob’s Creek Reserve wines to help promote the Australian wine’s True Character contest. The contest, which runs through March 31, gives wine enthusiasts a chance to win $5,000 to put toward their favorite charity or passion, which is pretty cool. To enter, you must visit www.facebook.com/jacobscreek, upload a photo of yourself and a brief description of how you stay true to yourself and show your true character. In addition to the $5,000, the winner will be featured in a Jacob’s Creek commercial,

I have tried two of the four wines that were sent to me. All wines are $12.99.

Jacob’s Creek Reserve Chardonnay 2010

You all know how I feel about oaked Chardonnay. I am not a big fan but I wanted to give it a try. Not my preference, but I think Chardonnay admirers will enjoy this wine. It’s a crisp Chardonnay from the Adelaide Hills region of South Australia. Full-bodied with peach and lemon flavors and a nutty finish.

The high rainfall and cool ripening conditions of the Adelaide Hills give this Chardonnay that crisp acidity.

Jacob’s Creek Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

This wine includes select grapes grown in the Coonawarra region in South Australia. The Coonawarra is known for its rich red ‘Terra Rossa’ soil and is widely regarded as Australia’s best and most famous Cabernet Sauvignon region.

Very distinct clove smell. Fruity with a hint of mint. Full-bodied, rich and smooth to the finish. Delicious wine.

I look forward to tasting the other two: Jacob’s Creek Reserve Barossa Shiraz and Reserve Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir.

    I’m part of those who can’t say “No” when somebody suggest me a glass of wine! That’s why I’m always glad to find websites which talk about tips, addresses or reviews. You definitively have to check this one: http://www.frenchcultureguide.com/category/wine/. You will find so much great information!
