Jacob’s Creek Sparkling Rosé is a non-vintage bottle Fermented sparkling wine which is vintaged from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes sourced from a variety of Australia’s grape growing regions. Being a non-vintage sparkling, complexity and consistency of style is achieved by including both current and prior vintages.
Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes are selected from both cooler and warmer grape growing regions. The cooler premium districts give acid structure and length, whereas the warmer regions ensure richness and depth of varietal fruit flavour. The grapes are harvested in the cool of night with minimal skin contact. Gentle pressing in the winery producesjuices of elegance, finesse and soft flavour, essential for the making of quality sparkling wine. These juices are then fermented separately using a cultured sparkling yeast strain to produce clean delicate base wines. Following full malolactic fermentation, which adds palate richness and creamy complexity, the base wines undergo secondary fermentation in bottle. A degree of natural pink colour is also preserved in the finished wine to produce this sparkling Rosé style.
