From the bottle:
"For this wine we reserved selected parcels of grapes grown in the Barossa region in South Australia. The higher vineyards of the Barossa are characterised by a slightly cooler climate and stony soils allowing for optimal ripening of Riesling grapes.Today we go back to the Barossa, this time for a white wine after yesterday's juicy Shiraz: Chateau Tanunda Grand Barossa Shiraz 2010 - Juicy! We've enjoyed many a red wine from Jacob's Creek in the past but today's is our first white.
2010 Jacob's Creek Reserve Riesling exhibits strong regional characteristics with its vibrant lime, delicate white floral aromas and lemon citrus flavors that lead to a crisp dry finish with refreshing zesty acidity.
The 2010 Jacob's Creek Reserve Barossa Dry Riesling begins with very nice aromas of candied citrus, apple and pear plus a little spice and some floral notes. Tasting the wine reveals a whole lot of lemon and lime wrapped up in a lively texture with good acidity. There's a little bit of spice and ginger ale as well, but this one is mostly about all that delicious lemon and lime. Those flavors continue on the long finish, turning a bit tart. Delightful!
