Arguably one of Australia's most famous wineries - particularly in the important UK and American markets - Jacobs Creek remains surprisingly South Australian in it's genetics.
Jacobs Creek itself is a surprisingly little thing - a mere stream in fact - but the vineyards alongside it, first planted by Johann Gramp in 1847, were in fact some of the first planted in the Barossa Valley, making them particularly relevant to the success of the Australian wine industry (which is arguably still driven from the Barossa)
Jacobs Creek History
Whilst the first vines were planted way back in 1847, the Jacob's Creek name didn't actually appear until 1976, with the release of a 1973 Jacobs Creek 'Claret' - a blend of Shiraz and Cabernet from the Barossa and McLaren Vale, blended with a spoonful of Malbec from Padthaway. Since then Jacob's Creek has gone on to be one of the most successful Australian wineries on a world stage, with the original 'Claret' Shiraz Cabernet blend still sitting at the core of the range.
Jacobs Creek Wine Types

Just quietly, several of us around the office think this is the best wine in the Jacob's Creek Reserve lineup. Don't tell the more popular reds that of course, but having had this particular wine without knowing what it was and been very impressed...
The benefits of being big is on display here, with Jacobs Creek demonstrating that not every Cabernet from Coonawarra needs be expensive. Besides the price though this is a grunty red with big flavours (they're big) and a welcome hit of tannins. L...
