Silky and spicy. This elegant, medium bodied expression of Stellenbosch Zinfandel, also known as Primitivo, exhibits a superb power-to-weight ratio. Aromas of vanilla and sweet fynbos dominate the nose. An effortless entry leads to an explosive revolving tray of origanum, sage and red cherry flavours dancing on the palate. A refreshing wine with an attractive long finish.
