Jacob's Creek Reserve Chardonnay Pinot Noir

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Wow! This has to be the ultimate value party starter. Made the same way as Champagne, it shows lots of citrus, stone fruits and red berries on the nose, which translates quite well to the palate. It's all wrapped up in fine bubbles, a creamy mouthfeel, a zesty acidity, and would go well with that prawn cocktail you are kicking the party off with.

Jacob's Creek Reserve Chardonnay Pinot Noir

Expert Reviews

Jeremy Oliver (2010 Vintage) says
Long and smooth, with a creamy, floral fragrance of peaches and cream lifted by scents of red cherries, strawberries and fresh, nutty bakery yeast. Gentle flavours of tightly knit fruit with creamy leesy complexity extend evenly down the palate towards a fine, savoury finish punctuated by a finely integrated and racy acidity. Remarkable value.

Jeremy Oliver (2009 Vintage) says
Generous and creamy, with a fresh, lightly toasty, chardonnay-driven bouquet of fresh melon fruit backed by spicy, nutty nuances. It's smooth and even, with a fresh, crunchy presence that finishes quite savoury but without great length.

Unusual flinty aromas, fine bead and moderate yeasty/Vegemite flavours.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Straw-coloured; sourced from the Adelaide Hills, and bottle-fermented, although not in this bottle; extended lees contact has given the wine nutty complexity to go with the long fruit.

Bottle fermented, and has both balance and complexity in a relatively ripe mode.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Bright straw-green; attractive fruity aromas; plenty of citrussy stone fruit flavours, not overmuch bready/yeasty notes, but has good balance and fair length.

Unless you've been hiding out with Bin Laden you know that Jacob's Creek wines are value, flavour-filled, delish-but-not-pompous drink-now styles. So why would you muddy the waters with a Reserve label? Well, we know about my marketing nous (I have none), and I'm told these wines sell like an Amway rep. And boy they're good—the Reserve JCs are, if it were possible, even better value than the standards.
