This Primitivo (aka, Zinfandel) features lots raisins, plum, raspberry, black tea, cola, cocoa, purple flowers and dried earth. Full-bodied, there is a long finish and present tannins. BBQ all the way.
A red blend that combines all 5 traditional Bordeaux grapes. It’s quite dark in the glass with concentrated cherry, cassis, liquorice, toasty spices and herbal notes on the nose. It’s rich and spicy on the palate with a mélange of red and dark fruit to go with a structured feel on the palate and good acidity for balance.
Ruby-purplish. Mixed small red fruits, a touch of spice. A slight vegetal edge brings freshness. Very soft on the palate; velvety tannins; medium to full body with a nice roundness. It finishes barely firm with good length. Ready to drink, it will go nicely with charcuteries.
Highly aromatic gooseberry backed up with fresh grassy and mineral scents and a whiff of passion fruit. Followed by mouth-watering citrus and green gooseberry flavours, vibrant acidity and grippy mineral in the classic Marlborough style.
Medium ruby. Red fruits on the nose, spices and a hint of fruit stones. Spicy on the tongue, narrow and straightforward middle palate, it shows a certain purity. The finish is also pure; this was obviously made from perfectly healthy grapes.
The aromas are delicately fruity with suggestions of mineral, fennel and marzipan. Full and silky in the mouth, with flavours of vanilla, stone fruit and steamed rice. A touch hot on the way out.
Mellow ripe red fruit and peppery spice on the nose, shifting to surprisingly fresh and light raspberry flavours on the palate with a touch of green herb, lightly firm tannins and food-friendly acidity. Fine value.
