Jacob?s Creek? Chief Winemaker tips 2012 as the best vintage in 20 years
2012 is being declared as one of the best vintages in recent memory by the winemakers
behind the internationally acclaimed Australian wine brand, Jacob?s Creek.
According to Jacob?s Creek Chief Winemaker Bernard Hickin:
?Vintage 2012 has produced an exciting line-up of wines across most South Australian
regions with both reds and whites having exceptional quality and intense varietal character.?
?Early indications are that 2012 will go down as one of the great Australian vintages for the
last 20 years ? comparable with 1990 and 1991.?
?One of the reasons that the 2012 vintage stands out is that there are so many highlights. We
have seen stunning quality from premium regions like Barossa, Coonawarra and Adelaide
Hills but also outstanding parcels from commercial regions such as South Australia?s
? Barossa Chardonnay, Semillon and Riesling
? Barossa Shiraz & Cabernet Sauvignon
? Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon
? Riverland Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
