Jericho Wines is a new and exciting wine brand brought to you by the Jericho family: Neil, Kaye, Sally, Andrew, and Kim. Neil and Andrew have crafted the wines, with 50 years of wine making between them. Kim, the graphic artist has designed the labels, with Sally and Kaye support the family business and administration. The label takes inspiration from grape grower Vic Jericho, Neil’s father.
A medium bodied and elegant Shiraz, balanced and structured for drinking upon release, but with potential to cellar for several years to come.Gentle pressing and handling of the fruit, coupled with light handed oak treatment. Maturation in older French oak barrels ensures the wine is not over oaked and in balance with the structure and fruit characters of the wine.
It’s fresh and raring to go but it has good volume too. In fact there’s a heartiness to the fruit here. Plums, violets, forest berries and a minted licorice character. It’s damn tasty and damn good to drink. No hesitation in recommending this.
