2021 Jericho Tempranillo Adelaide Hills – 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.
They look to make wines that reflect the vineyard and the variety – that are a true reflection of the soil, the climate and showcase these differences through careful winemaking choices. It has been a conscious decision for them to only produce small batches of handcrafted wines of elegance and sophistication.
An early release, ‘joven’ (young) style of Tempranillo. A soft extraction process followed by ageing in old french oak for only four months, preserves the soft and aromatic flavours. Giving the wine a fresh, juicy and vibrant palate with soft tannins and an elegant finish.
The vineyards are located in the southern end of the Adelaide Hills which is quite a cool part of the hills. The vines are located on a loamy soil over clay which influences the fruit flavours of the grapes and resulting wine with soft fruit and fine tannins.
The resulting wine from the vineyard and winemaking is a very easy drinking wine. It is fresh, fruity, juicy and delicious. It has strong and striking aromatic floral fruits characters which is persistent through to the palate and taste. Such an easy drinking wine to enjoy, consider drinking this wine chilled slightly during the warmer months.
