Description

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.

Wine Notes
Cool-climate Adelaide Hills shiraz fruit lends itself perfectly to our elegant syrah style. Inclusion of 10% whole bunch and extended post-ferment maceration has resulted in a wine of defined structure and finesse. A delicate yet powerful wine, careful use of seasoned French oak complements the weight of the fruit, and blends effortlessly into a long finish.
Vineyard
This Vineyard sits atop a wind swept ridge at just under 350m above sea level. The shallow rocky soil, non- irrigated dry farming and harsh conditions forces these vines to dig deep. Cropping at a mere 0.5 tonne per acre, the result are ultra concentrated, small berries which reflect the vineyard site.

93 Points - "Fermented on skins with 10% stalks for 38 days. Matured mainly in older French oak. Grapes sourced from the Corydon Vineyard at Kuitpo in the Adelaide Hills. Given an extra 20 months in bottle prior to release.

"Finesse is the word. It’s floral and fragrant with woodsy spice and general savouriness though fruit, ripe fruit, is the driver. This is a lovely wine. Elegant. Controlled. Pure. And expressive. There’s nothing hot or jammy about this; it’s fresh and alive." Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
