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.

About Jericho

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!

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.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"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)

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
