The beautifully glamboyant and ‘girl next door’ Naomi Watts has teamed up with Jacob’s Creek as Brand Ambassador for the launch of their new light and fresh wine range “Cool Harvest” - a new range of wines perfect for those precious moments with true friends – and yes you read the headline right Naomi enlisted her ‘real’ friends to participate in the photoshoot!
The inspiration behind the campaign is to encourage everyone to embrace true friendships and that sharing time with friends is precious:
“You tend to find very little time these days to get together with friends. I\’ve got two small children, I travel extensively and work takes up a lot of time, but it\’s important to have your friends in your life as well.Â They remind you where you come from and they keep you buoyant and energised. I need my friends to stay connected.”
“I love having a good dinner or a weekend get-together with friends. Luckily I\’ve got a beautiful beach house in Long Island where friends come and stay for the weekend. We cook together, play lots of games and the wine comes out; it\’s a very important ingredient to the weekend.” – Naomi Watts
About the “Cool Harvest” Range
Harvested in the cool of the night, Jacob\’s Creek has launched its new light and fresh wine range Cool Harvest as the perfect accompaniment this summer for picnics, BBQs and all occasions shared with friends during the party season.
According to Jacob\’s Creek Sparkling and White Winemaker, Rebekah Richardson, the night harvesting of the grapes is essential for creating the crisp and fresh style of the Cool Harvest range and makes it an ideal choice for casual gatherings with friends during the summer months.
“We specially pick our Cool Harvest grapes in the cool of the night to ensure we create naturally crisp and fresh-tasting wines – making Cool Harvest perfect for a lunchtime get-together with friends,” said Richardson.
The new range includes:
Sauvignon Blanc 2011 : Refreshing and zesty balance of lychee, lemongrass and citrus. The palate shows lovely balanced acidity which is vibrant to the finish. Delightful on its own or with soufflÃ©s, Thai curries or any citrus based dessert.
Pinot Grigio 2011 : Refreshing and zesty pear and citrus flavours balanced by nuances of crÃ¨me anglaise to finish. Delightful on its own or with any form of shellfish or a great match to fresh fruit desserts.
Shiraz RosÃ© 2011 (available from selected liquor retailers only) : Bursting with fresh berry fruit, reminiscent of biting into a summer strawberry, followed by a gentle finish of nicely tempered spice and quince. Delightful on its own or with coconut based curries, stir fries or berry crepes.
Sauvignon Blanc CuvÃ©e NV : Refreshingly effervescent with zesty flavours of lychee, lemongrass and citrus carried through by a vibrant acidity to the finish. Delightful on its own or with soufflÃ©s or citrus based desserts.
The Jacob\’s Creek Cool Harvest range sounds so delicious and is available now from liquor retailers around Australia (RRP $14.99), you can visit their website for more: www.jacobscreek.com.
