Jacob's Creek winemaking tradition dates back to 1847 when Johann Gramp planted his first vineyard on the banks of Jacob's Creek
Good winter rains were recorded across all grape growing regions throughout south eastern Australia during winter prior to the 2010 growing season. Ideal cool to mild weather was observed during early spring. This, together with excellent soil moisture profiles, promoted healthy vine canopy development. A period of very warm windy weather was encountered during mid November which impacted on fruit set and resulted in slightly below average yields. Warm to hot weather conditions were encountered early in the season across all viticultural regions, but this was followed by milder weather from early February through to late March as the harvest progressed, creating near-perfect conditions for ripening and producing sound fruit with bright, fresh varietal flavours, vibrant colours and rich yet soft tannins.
Parcels of Merlot grapes were sourced from our premium vineyards and were identified during regular vineyard inspections by our winemakers, who sought concentration of flavour and soft, sweet tannin profiles, perfectly suited to Jacob's Creek Merlot. Strategies such as the inclusion of a proportion of whole berries in some ferments at crushing, and the use of gentle pump-overs and rack and returns specifically tailored for each individual ferment, were employed so as to liberate attractive berry flavours, vibrant colour and ripe tannins. Only those parcels showing these characters were selected for the final blend. The aim was to produce a fresh and approachable wine with distinctive varietal Merlot fruit characteristics of soft tannin structure with rounded mid palate.
