Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A symphony of all types of wild black berries jump out of the glass and there is a dark and rich prune character laced throughout. High notes of hibiscus tea, blood orange and quince paste sit alongside glimpses of a silky smokiness of just toasted white bread. On the palate taste milk chocolate wrapped almonds, raisins and intense flavours of Turkish dried apricots. Black cherries and then cherry ripe finish with soft tannins and a lovely length which lingers on and on.
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.
