This is the perfect wine to accompany red meat or a spicy casserole, or just a delicious drink on its own. Match Zinfandel with his Italian pork sausages in a tomato concasse or feta and semi-dried tomato crusted lamb.

This wine will develop some lovely leathery characters with age, but ideally should be consumed within 3 to 5 years.

Vintage Conditions

Vintage 2014 was relatively interesting and after a frost early in the season, it panned out quite well for both our white and red wines. Spring saw average weather conditions followed by a hot, dry spell during late summer. The early frost decreased our yields but careful management of the vines including timely watering during a particularly hot period in late January, kept the vines stress free and in excellent condition.

Winemaking

As a late ripening variety with tight bunches, uneven ripening patterns and thin skins, if not grown in a suitably warm and dry climate, Zinfandel will fail to reach its optimum level of ripeness and can easily develop infections. The Rutherglen climate and conditions, our well drained soils and the exposure of our site make our vineyard a perfect location to produce world-class Zinfandel.

Industry Reviews

"Reminiscent of high-end gear from Sonoma (at a fraction of the price), this is a mouthfilling expression of sapid blue and red fruit flavours sewn to zin's dusty tannins, a complex oak regime and acidity from the uneven nature of zin's ripening pattern."

-James Halliday (Wine Companion, 2018)
