A very restrained palate, showing youthful and attractive fresh lemon zest with fresh green apple nuances which are supported by a very fine and taut mineral acidity, providing a linear spine which enhances the potential of the wine to age gracefully over time. Classic cool climate Riesling with delicate aromas of citrus blossom and a background of subtle white floral and fresh lemon juice intensity.
Jacob's Creek Steingarten Riesling, named after this iconic vineyard, is made from a small number of select cool-climate Riesling vineyards in the higher altitude Barossa Ranges. This wine has set a benchmark for Australian Riesling and is part of our most premium range. Less than two and a half kilometres from Jacob's Creek sits the Steingarten Vineyard. It is situated on a steep east-facing rocky outcrop on the western edge of the Barossa ranges.
