Always intriguing and satisfying, the aromas that are displayed from this Zinfandel bring forth dark fruits, California raisins, forest undergrowth and the faint hint of exotic spice markets.
The wine is generous and full bodied on the palate, yet still maintains a sense of balance, counteracting ripe fruit against precise acidity and fine grain tannins.
2015 provided an excellent growing season for our Merlot vines. Naturally low yields from a cool period of weather during fruit-set gave us concentrated grapes and open, disease free clusters. Warm to moderate temperatures throughout the year, helped preserve acidity, whilst rapidly generating sugars. One of earliest harvest’s on record, meant we had picked out the blocks in mid-September, harvesting grapes that were perfectly ripe, intense and delightfully aromatic with a perfect balance of acidity.
