Primo Estate Zamberlan Cabernet Sangiovese 2015  14.5%  6x75

Primo Estate Zamberlan Cabernet Sangiovese 2015 14.5% 6x75


Price: 125.00

Quantity:

The 2015 Zamberlan is a rich and complex wine with multiple layers of fruit, spice and subtle oak and a rich, savoury finish.
It is named after Joe's father-in-law, Rinaldo Zamberlan, who first suggested using the Ripasso technique, where newly fermented young Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon juice is pumped over dried grape skins from a previous batch, in this case the skins leftover from Primo's flagship the JOSEPH Moda, for additional fermentation. The juice is then pressed and barrel aged in the very best oak barriques.
The wine has incredibly intense and complex aromas: ripe dark fruits of the forest and a nutmeg spicy lift. Rich chocolate from the Ripasso process is counterbalanced with a maraschino cherry lift from the Sangiovese.
The palate is rich and full bodied with firm tannins and succulent cassis fruit notes over chocolate and tobacco leaf flavours, while the Sangiovese brings a savoury finish with cherry fruit characters.
It has amazing depth and layers of flavour. The 2015 Zamberlan is drinking well now and will improve in the bottle for over a decade.

Tim Adams Cabernet Malbec 2012  14.5%  6x75

Tim Adams Cabernet Malbec 2012 14.5% 6x75


Price: 76.00

Quantity:

"Excellent release. Aflame with personality, regionality and life. It's dusty, curranty, shows elements of gun smoke and gum leaf and swings decisively through the finish. Don't hesitate. 94 points"
(James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion)
The wine is full bodied with vibrant blackcurrant and violet aromas and flavours, balanced by smooth tannins and subtle oak. It's drinking beautifully now and will cellar well for a decade or so.

Primo Estate Joseph Moda Amarone 2014 6x75  15.0%

Primo Estate Joseph Moda Amarone 2014 6x75 15.0%


Price: 185.00

Quantity:

Since 1987, Joe Grilli has produced this exotic blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot using the amarone method made famous in Italy. Fruit from the Clarendon vineyard is hung on racks and air-dried prior to crushing, creating a deep, brooding wine with great depth, balance and concentration of flavour.
A regular in the top wines in the Oz Clarke Wine Guide, our experience of older vintages of this wine confirms that this is a sensational wine which fully reward cellaring for up to 15 years.
