Jacob’s Creek has launched Jacob’s Creek Better By Half, a new range of light and crisp wines with half the alcohol and calories of regular wine.
Available in three varietals, with Better by Half, the winery is transforming mid-strength wines in Australia by providing light wines that retain a delightful mouthfeel and delicious crisp flavour. The new range meets a growing demand from consumers who are increasingly adopting a mindset of moderation.
To make Jacob’s Creek Better by Half, winemakers in the Barossa Valley gently separate the alcohol away from the wine with a special filter during the winemaking process. The wine has been reduced to just 5.5% ABV, a 50% decrease in alcohol which translates to a corresponding 50% decrease in calories. Each 100ml glass of wine has just 36 calories.
The Jacob’s Creek Better By Half range is comprised of three varietals, Pinot Grigio, Rosé and Brut Cuvée sparkling and is well suited to a wide selection of pairings. For the Pinot Grigio, Jacob’s Creek Winemaker, Trina Smith suggests seafood dishes and salads. For the Rosé and Brut Cuvée, a variety of light savoury dishes are perfect pairs, such as charcuterie, quiche and soufflés.
The new low ABV range is available in 750mL from Liquorland and First Choice for an RRP of $21.99.
