Every ounce of power is counterbalanced by elegance. It has texture and length, though neither are overly pronounced. It’s handy and then some.
About the Wine
Campbell Mattinson described Jericho as a "Tiny producer making excellent wines", which pretty much sums up this excellent winery. This is a fantastic take on an often misunderstood wine style.
Fermented in old French oak and aged on its lees, this is full of rich texture and complexity. The key though is the harmony between these creamy oak characters, ripe tropical fruit and cleansing acidity achieved by winemakers Neil and Andrew Jericho.
A delicious, flavour-packed wine for lovers of textural whites, and outstanding value.
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.
