About The Wine

Another spot-on Fiano here from one of South Australia's brightest emerging producers - Jericho.

We've seen some outstanding Fianos from McLaren Vale, Riverland and even Clare Valley, but the Adelaide Hills has enormous potential with the Italian variety as well. This comes from Kuitpo in the southern end of the Hills, closer to McLaren Vale where, as Neil Jericho explained to us, the later ripening conditions really suit Fiano.

If you're looking for a versatile, introductory Fiano to try you could hardly do better than this. Textural, full-flavoured yet fresh as a daisy - it's a lovely, well-balanced wine.

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.

Additional Info

From The Producer

To showcase the fresh varietal characteristics of this style of wine, deliberate, simplistic winemaking techniques were implemented with minimal intervention. Fermented in stainless steel to maintain freshness, on fine lees giving complexity and intensity and bottled soon after fermentation to retain the freshness.

Blended from two small neighbouring vineyards in the southern Adelaide Hills. Harvested at slightly different times allowing full ripening and developing complexity and variety of flavour. The elevation and cool climate of these vineyards in gives elegance and lets the varietal characters of the grape show in the rest.

Lovely aromatics of stone fruit and fresh herbs. On the palate freshly cut stone fruit of apricots and peaches, a touch of pear and lime with lovely structure and texture in the mouth. The wine finishes with lovely texture and fresh acid balance. The palate is fresh, with rich stone fruits and citrus and clean, crisp acidity.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Juicy, slippery white of nashi pear meets ginger characters, relatively light even with the glossy texture and shows good length and a great deal of interest for a drinker. Feels like one of those ‘that sounds interesting’ wines off a suburban bistro/wine bar list. Done well here." - Mike Bennie (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 1300 668 385 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).
