“Zinfandel is something David McHenry himself introduced to Australia. He studied in California in the seventies and he brought it back with him. He’s pretty much the pioneer of the variety in Australia. We feel we’re making the best version of the variety. ”

Tasting Notes

This seductive old-world styled red fights for your attention with its bouquet of black cherry, quince and dark chocolate.

The grapes are pressed using a traditional basket press with the juice left to rest in fine French oak barrels for 14 months. Grown on McHenry Hohnen’s home block – Hazel’s Vineyard – this Zinfandel is an insatiable wine that is both bright and fresh.

“Hard not to admire this wine. It pushes the boundaries of ripeness but it keeps itself both fresh and nice. It feels fluid, transparent and bright, its berried fruits angling gently into coal and cocoa-like characters. Both impressive and more-ish at once. ”

Points

90 Points James Halliday , Wine Companion

“A whole berry ferment in stainless steel, hand-plunged and pumped over, basket-pressed, matured for 14 months in French oak, the usual no addition regime. Margaret River invests zinfandel with more body than SA versions, the fruits tending to blackberry, with an interplay of the confection fruit that is so commonly encountere ... d in California.
