About The Wine
In search of elegance and concentration in his Shiraz/Syrah, Neil Jericho heads to the Adelaide Hills here for some special fruit from a special site.
This vineyard crops insanely low, only half a tonne of fruit per acre coming off these vines. The berries small and super-concentrated, the resulting wines may be Neil's finest expression of this variety.
To tame the power of this fruit, Neil leaves this wine on skins for more than a month, a small portion of whole bunch included in the ferment.
This wine is sleek, smooth and spicy. A beautiful example of Hills Syrah that received 95 points from James Halliday.
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.
