2014 Old Vine Zinfandel

$50.00

Wimps beware! This wine is made from some of the oldest ‘Zin’ vines in Australia (’76) and has a real ‘wine for heroes’ nose. The palate is huge with hints of liquorice and enormous flavour and length boosted by high alcohol. It is obviously a wine for eccentrics and is made to rival Stilton cheese. Very limited quantities of this wine are available.

Category:
10% discount of 6-11 bottles are ordered and 20% discount of 12 or more ordered.

Tasting Note

There’s a fabulously complex nose here with some briar, lots of ripe red fruits and a whiff of forest floor.

No surprise that the palate is on the big side, but not overly heavy. There’s some very ripe red fruit upfront along with the cloves and oranges of a Christmas pudding. By mid-palate there is a swamping of flavour that rolls on way after the swallow but with surprisingly silky tannins. This will reward cellaring to allow the ample acids, which now harness the flavours, to retreat gracefully into the fruit. A proper zin.
