Jericho McLaren Vale S3 Shiraz 2019
Lovely intensity of rich Shiraz fruit flavours but with an elegant structure and tannin level that gives this wine a great drinkable quality. Bright fruits – black berry, black currants, plums, violets & delicate spice.
A generous Shiraz with complex flavours typical of the sub region. 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.
Located in mid region of McLaren Vale and grown on the same soil composition of Blewitt Springs, sand with Iron Stone and underlying clay. Low yielding vineyards produces this wine of excellent Shiraz fruit and great intensity of fruit flavours and elegant structure.
The structure of this wines gives to a great quality to match up with a wide range of food: Tapas, BBQ’d and smoked meats, cheese, pizza, pasta and much more…
Balanced and structured for drinking upon release, but with potential to cellar for 6 to 8 years.
