About The Wine
Campbell Mattinson named Jericho as a "Tiny producer making excellent wines." which pretty much sums it up.
This is a fantastic take on an often misunderstood wine style. The key to this wine is the harmony struck between oak and fruit by winemaker Neil and Andrew Jericho. Balanced to perfection, this is one of the classiest examples of Fume Blanc in the country.
The 2017 is an intelligently built wine which Campbell Mattinson awarded an impressive 93 points.
A delightful wine for lovers of textural whites.
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.
