ABOUT THE WINE
If you’re a fan of fresh, fruit-driven reds then you’ll absolutely adore this. Just try and stop drinking it! Jericho Wines is an exciting wine brand created by the Jericho family: Neil, Kaye, Sally, Andrew, and Kim. Neil and Andrew, with 50 years of wine making experience between them, have created the wines. Kim is a graphic artist and has designed the labels, while Sally and Kaye support the family business and administration. Jericho Family Wines are becoming increasingly popular thanks to their desire to reflect the environment in all their products.
The South Australian region of McLaren Vale is famous for its powerful red wines. Shiraz and Grenache have thrived for years in the Vale’s sandy soils. The region’s diversity has majorly increased, the coastal location and warm climate proving perfect for a new wave of varieties from Italy, Spain and Portugal. McLaren Vale is one of the country’s most vibrant wine scenes. It’s where tradition meets innovation and it is producing some of the Australia’s finest wines.
This wine tends to be on the bigger side so treat your meal pairings the same way; big full flavors. You could even use similar pairings that would come with a Cabernet Sauvignon. Red meats and game will go well with the GSM. Also, mushroom and pepper sauces will work well. Most seafood will not work with this wine, but a Tuna or maybe even a Salmon with a rich sauce could go well with this wine. Mild meats such as chicken, turkey and pork should be stayed away from as well. Because of the acidity that comes along with this wine, citrus and cream sauces should be limited and not used for the best meal possible.
