About the Wine

This utterly delicious Tempranillo comes from Jericho - a terrific little family-owned-and-run Adelaide Hills producer that is making waves. The Jericho wines are all made in small quantities, with varietal character, balance and approachability the key.

It's definitely a 'joven' style of Tempranillo - best drunk in its youth while fresh and bursting with juicy fruit. Campbell Mattinson remarked of the 2019 "It’s easy to like and yet it doesn’t seem compromised. It’s beaut to drink.", and it's just that sort of wine - immediately enjoyable in all occasions.

Deliciously approachable, versatile with food, beautifully packaged and tremendous value. Vamos!

About Jericho

Jericho is one of the most exciting emerging producers in South Australia, consistently churning out delicious, characterful and brilliantly priced wines in all styles.

Family owned and run with experienced winemaker Neil Jericho at the helm, they source both traditional and alternative varieties from various vineyards around McLaren Vale and the Adelaide Hills. Neil sums up the Jericho philosophy: “in every wine I like to see varietal flavour and character. I don’t want to overpower the fruit with oak. It’s got to be in balance, with nothing sticking out. They’ve got to be drinkable!”

Modern, creative and smashable wines and across the range, amazing value.

From the Producer

Winemakers Notes

An early release, ‘joven’ (young) style of Tempranillo. A soft extraction process followed by ageing in old french oak for only four months, preserves the soft and aromatic flavours. Giving the wine a fresh, juicy and vibrant palate with soft tannins and an elegant finish.

Vineyards

The vineyards are located in the southern end of the Adelaide Hills which is quite a cool part of the hills. The vines are located on a loamy soil over clay which influences the fruit flavours of the grapes and resulting wine with soft fruit and fine tannins.

Joven Style

A significant influence towards making this style is to press the grapes at an earlier stage of fermentation. Pressing the ferment at this stage means that less tannins were able to build up in the wine resulting in a much softer wine. A wine what allows it to be drunk at an early age. The wine spent a small amount of time in old french oak barrels to build some influence of oak but not to subdue the fresh juiciness of the wine.

Food Pairing

This wine is a great option to enjoy any time of the year, any time of the day and with a wide range of food. Perfect for your summer BBQ’s. Great with pizza, pasta and tapas. Cellaring Drink within 3-4 years while the flavours are fresh and juicy.

The Wine Front

"It’s easy to like and yet it doesn’t seem compromised. It’s beaut to drink. It’s both fruit-driven and textural but it doesn’t taste overtly sweet and freshness is its main game. There are so many berry flavours here that we’re almost in bubble-gum territory but it’s also smoky and floral and soft. It then finishes dry. Given half a chance I’d gulp this one down in the most responsible of ways. Perfectly pitched young Tempranillo." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

FaQs
Do I have to order in dozens?

No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts?

No our pricing is aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?

Can I special order a wine you do not sell?

If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
