The mix of fruit sweetness, savouriness and spiciness is exemplary... Pitch perfect GSM.
About the Wine
McLaren Vale 'GSM' blends work so very well, and this wine from the good people at Jericho is a contemporary, joyous celebration of the style.
The fruit comes from 40-year-old, unirrigated bush vines in the Blewitt Springs area - a sub-region that is home to many of the Vale's finest and most perfumed Grenache. Owner and winemaker Neil Jericho explained to us that while the Shiraz (10%) and Mataro (3%) components definitely add something to this wine, the hero is Grenache (87%). Juicy, jubey, delicious Grenache!
Campbell Mattinson labelled it "Pitch perfect GSM" in his 93 point review and we agree - cracking little wine at a bloody excellent price.
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.
