About The Wine

Another spot-on Fiano here from one of South Australia's brightest emerging producers - Jericho.

We've seen some outstanding Fianos from McLaren Vale, Riverland and even Clare Valley, but the Adelaide Hills has enormous potential with the Italian variety as well. This comes from Kuitpo in the southern end of the Hills, closer to McLaren Vale where, as Neil Jericho explained to us, the later ripening conditions really suit Fiano.

If you're looking for a versatile, introductory Fiano to try you could hardly do better than this. Textural, full-flavoured yet fresh as a daisy - it's a lovely, well-balanced wine.

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.

The Wine Front

"Texture, flavour, elegance and length. Fiano, well made and well presented. It tastes of grapefruit and apple, stone fruit and spice, a pretty honeysuckle-like note too. Plenty of interest. Excellent fruit power. Length. Good from every angle." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

Halliday Wine Companion

"Machine-harvested at 4am, 4 hours skin contact, fermented and matured on light lees in tank for 5 months The vinification has worked to perfection, bringing out the texture normally associated with barrel fermentation and/or other magicians tricks. Interesting techniques used here undoubtedly add to its attraction." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

Winemakers Notes
To showcase the fresh varietal characteristics of this style of wine, deliberate, simplistic winemaking techniques were implemented with minimal intervention. Fermented in stainless steel to maintain freshness, on fine lees giving complexity and intensity and bottled soon after fermentation to retain the freshness.

Vineyards
Blended from two small neighbouring vineyards in the southern Adelaide Hills. Harvested at slightly different times allowing full ripening and developing complexity and variety of flavour. The elevation and cool climate of these vineyards in gives elegance and lets the varietal characters of the grape show in the resulting wine.
