Jericho's Fume Blanc 2022 takes Sauvignon Blanc on a delightful detour, drawing inspiration from the esteemed wines of Pouilly Fume in the Loire Valley. This unique approach is evident from the moment you pour a glass, as a lifted tropical bouquet leaps out, showcasing vibrant pineapple, passionfruit, and ripe peaches. These flavors are complemented by delicate nuances of brioche and cashew nuts, derived from meticulous lees stirring.

Crafted entirely in seasoned French oak, and aged on lees for four months with regular stirring, this wine reveals a symphony of bright tropical fruits harmoniously intertwined with the complexities of lees contact. Notes of baking spice, brioche, and cashew butter add depth, while a refreshing lemon-lime acidity provides balance and structure.

Sourced from the high-altitude Kuitpo subregion in the Southern Adelaide Hills, specifically the Morialta Park vineyard in scenic Norton Summit, this Fume Blanc benefits from slower ripening, contributing to its complexity and elegance. The shallow, well-drained soils further enhance fruit concentration and impart a crucial mineral acidity essential for this style of wine.

For food pairings, treat this Fume Blanc like a Chardonnay. It complements dishes like homemade pasta with a creamy sauce, fresh asparagus, and a generous sprinkle of Parmesan, offering a delightful culinary experience that echoes the wine's sophistication and charm.

Alc/Vol: 13.5%
