Excellent fruit power. Length. Good from every angle.
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.
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.
