About The Wine
The Jericho Wines Corydon Syrah comes from the cool-climate slopes of the Adelaide Hills, with its origins plain to see – and lovely.
This is an excellent example of the quality available from Adelaide Hills Syrah, where the red fruits shine. Cherry and strawberry leap from the glass, paired with enticing aromas of musk, rose petals and rhubarb, as well as some spicy, savoury and herbal tones, giving the wine a complex and alluring bouquet. The tannins are silky and not too showy, working in consonance with the bright acidity and well-strucutured palate to give the wine elegance, as well as some power.
If you can wait, you can cellar the Corydon Syrah for a few more years, or drink it now with some roast lamb or spicy dishes.
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!
