Idiom Zinfandel 2015
A powerful wine typical of our exotic Zinfandel. Aromas of bayleaf and dried rosemary dominate the nose. Intense, evolving flavours of biltong, liquorice and black currants stimulate the palate. The usual smooth long lingering finish invites further participation.

Following two days of cold maceration the grapes rose to temperatures of between 25 & 28°C throughout fermentation. Twice daily the grapes were punched down by hand in their stainless steel fermentation tanks. 30% American oak and 70% French oak was used, where the wine completed malolactic fermentation and maturation for a further 12 months.
