Old Vines Zinfandel
2018 Old Vine Zinfandel
The Peel Estate Zinfandel - Wimps beware! This wine is made from some of the oldest Zinfandel 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.
With 16% alcohol and a back label that states 'Wimps beware!' you know what you're getting yourself into ... On the palate this is far softer and rounder than expected, the alcohol presents itself after the wine has gone – one could breathe fire. For lovers of the variety, this is plush, ripe and very succulent. Licorice, quince, date, mulberry, raspberry, chocolate and fig.
