2011 The 8th (deadly Zin) Zinfandel

This has been such a favourite, so popular we are down to our last 20 dozen.  Drinking really well now and seems to be consumed rather than cellared. But the patient and you will be rewarded by aging it further.  Don’t delay your order because it is flying out the door.

 

John Mettams barrel fermented our wine, maturing it for 14 months in a blend of French and American oak barriques.

TASTING NOTES

If you are looking for a full bodiedflavoursomewine this is it.

Deeply coloured and showing good viscosity indicating the richness of alcohol and body.

The aroma is of raspberry fruit characters being lifted by the alcohol, showing good medicinal characters with an undercurrent of Mediterranean herbs and dried spices.

The taste is rich and satisfying. Heat from the alcohol is evident but is balanced by fruit and wood ageing. The wine lingers attractively on the finish. 

A big complex style that will reward with keeping although it can be enjoynow.
