Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Dark richly perfumed cherries and intensely fragrant strawberry jelly greet you followed by the scent of perfumed dark roses with hints of tea and orange oil. The palate is spicy and reminiscent of chai tea. Evocative flavours of a rich tagine with expressions of orange oil and truffle notes all entwine with dark sweet berry fruit.
Production Notes
This wine was fermented using traditional plunging techniques in open fermenters followed by an extended maceration on skins. The wine was aged in a combination of older French and American oak puncheons and hogsheads for 12 months.
Other Notes
Primitivo is found growing on the heel of the boot of Italy in a region called Puglia. Originally a native of Croatia, Primitivo eventually travelled west to the USA where it mysteriously became known as Zinfandel. We have used the Primitivo synonym with this wine to reflect its exuberant Mediterranean style.
