Description

Primitivo, also known as Zinfandel and instantly `White Zin’ springs to mind, made from the same grapes but that’s about all they have in common. White Zin is rose made from red grapes, lightly pressed and fermented like a white wine, usually with some residual sugar. Primitivo, however makes rich, full bodied red wines offering excellent value for money, the perfect BBQ or BYO wine. Italian red wines seem to constantly amaze with their acid/tannin combination, complexity and balance even when the grapes come from warmer climates. With over 4000 native varieties that excel in their respective diverse climates within this country, it is no wonder they are the masters of these savoury, full bodied, value for money wine styles.

Smells

baked blackberry tart, mulberry, blue berry, dark cherries and milk chocolate aromas warm the senses underpinned by exotic brown spices, bramble and vanilla pod notes

Tastes

A concentrated core of fruit gives instant appeal on the palate where dark, baked fruit flavours are intertwined with milk and dark chocolate, cinnamon, cedar. This rich, warm core is enveloped in dusty tannins that intrigue rather than dominate, giving the perfect balance to the ripe, complex fruit. A classic example of an Italian wine that is ultimately satisfying and great everyday drinking. Imagine sticky BBQ pork ribs and a glass of Papale, a match made in heaven.
