A batch of new wines from Jacobs Creek are about to appear on the shelves; high-end(ish) stuff providing the final price-bracket layer for the brand. The Heritage label is Pernod Richard's strategy to take the brand up-market. Each wine is from a single region.
  • Jacob's Creek Steingarten Riesling, 2002, Barossa Valley. Under screwcap for £14.99.
  • Jacob's Creek Centenary Hill Shiraz, 1997, Barossa Valley. £14.99
  • Jacob's Creek St Hugo Cabernet Sauvignon, 2002, Coonawarra, £24.99
A Reserve Sauvignon Blanc and a Reserve Merlot are now available in Australia.

These are the range of wines formerly under the Orlando label but since rebranded as Jacob's Creek. Can't see the rebranding having benefit locally, but I guess in the UK the existing strong branding may get people to trade up and try this range.

The '02 Steingarten is an absolute cracker - great vintage, great vineyard and a great wine ... although the price looks a touch high compared to what it was released for over here (Under 10 incl. tax). I'm not quite as keen on the other two wines mentioned though.

I havent seen them on the shelves here yet; will keep an eye out for the Steingarten though if you recommend it.
