Creek of the Week - Jacob's Creek Reserve Riesling

The award-winning Jacob's Creek Reserve Riesling had generous, appealing flavors of floral and citrus with hints of green apple. Perfectly balanced with outstanding length, this wine is the perfect choice for fall gatherings. The vibrant green of the 2008 vintage shows the youth of the wine, but this Riesling is ready to drink now.

If aging is your thing, the screw cap enclosure allows the flavor profile of the wine to develop to show honey and toast characteristics without the affect on color natural cork may have; believe me I've tried some older vintages they are delicious!

As the fall weather takes hold and Thanksgiving approaches, consider the Jacob's Creek Reserve Riesling for your gatherings. Used as an aperitif and paired with appetizers such as crab cakes or soft cheeses.
