The team at Jacob’s Creek applied their own “double barrel” finishing process to premium red wines. First, high quality fruit is selected from leading Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon growing regions, which is fermented into premium red wine and then matured in traditional French or American Oak wine barrels. A blend is then created intended for Double Barrel, and 100% of that blend is finished in whisky barrels.
The development of Double Barrel has been a complex project that has taken two years since inception for Jacob’s Creek to perfect. The result is a premium range consisting of Double Barrel Shiraz and Double Barrel Cabernet Sauvignon. Premium red wines, matured first in traditionally toasted wine barrels, and then finished in aged whiskey barrels. This unique double-barrel technique imparts additional layers of complexity,beautifully integrated tannins, and an incredibly smooth mouth-feel.
- Jacob’s Creek Double Barrel Chardonnay To make Double Barrel Chardonnay, the juice is split in halves. The first half is fermented in whisky barrels, and then matured in wine barrels. The second half is fermented in wine barrels, and then finished in whisky barrels. This provides two very different flavor profiles which are then blended together to create an exceptional palate which is both unique and unexpected.
- Jacob’s Creek Double Barrel Shiraz was finished in Scotch whisky barrels and best matched with a pan seared Scotch Fillet of beef wrapped in smoky bacon
- Jacob’s Creek Double Barrel Cabernet Sauvignon was finished in Irish whiskey barrels and works beautifully with a roasted rack of lamb with chargrilled eggplant.
Le Petit Rosé by JACOB’S CREEK is made from Australian grapes by Australian winemakers, but reflects a style of Rosé that is common in the provincial French countryside. Le Petit Rosé captures the elegant and savoury style of French Rosé, with the freshness and purity of Australian fruit. The winemaking team re-thought the style of Rosé they were making and changed some things. Earlier harvest timing, different grape varieties, gentler handing, and different yeasts were some of the differences. The result is Le Petit Rosé, a dry, balanced, lightly textured Rosé which is elegant and readily drinkable, a little French in style but made in Australia from Australian-grown grapes.
JACOB’S CREEK Le Petit Rosé is now available at the department store with a recommended retail price of 675 Baht per 750ml bottle.
