Jacob’s Creek Cool Harvest Wines

December 1, 2011

Hooray! Today marks the first day of summer in Australia, so it seems only fitting to share the new range of light and fresh wines by Australian winemaker, Jacob’s Creek.  Let me introduce you to Jacob’s Creek Cool Harvest.  As the name suggests, the night harvesting of the grapes is essential for creating the crisp and fresh style of the Cool Harvest range. The wines are honest, unpretentious and ready to drink… preferably with a group of your closest girlfriends.  Stylishly presented in clear glass bottles, the Cool Harvest range has been endorsed by the talented Australian actress, Naomi Watts.  So you might see Naomi’s beautiful smiley face adorning the ads.

The Jacob’s Creek Cool Harvest range (below) is now widely available from liquor retailers around Australia (RRP $14.99) and includes:

  • Jacob’s Creek Cool Harvest Sauvignon Blanc 2011
  • Jacob’s Creek Cool Harvest Pinot Grigio 2011
  • Jacob’s Creek Cool Harvest Shiraz Rosé 2011 (selected liquor retailers only)
  • Jacob’s Creek Cool Harvest Sauvignon Blanc Cuvée NV

The sparkling white is actually a sparkling Sauvignon Blanc and this means that it has a slightly different taste from its more pinot varietal dominated competitors.  I noticed that this suited the wine well for long, slow pours where the sparkling warms up before the last glass is imbibed.  The Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon Blanc are nice light introductions to these varietals and would not offend anyone with their presentation and taste.  They represent strong value for money and certainly worth considering if you are catering for large parties.

    Drinking it in slow sips
    On Sydney Harbour watching the ships,
    His hands on my waist
    Savouring the taste
    kissing the tang from my lips

      Hi Jasmine, shortly after launching, we had to extend the competition deadline to the 16/12/11. I apologise for any confusion this may have caused. It won’t happen again as I have a process in place now. Please keep an eye out for more promotions this summer 😉

      Best wishes,
