Primo Estate Zamberlan Cabernet Sangiovese 2016  14.5%  6x75

Primo Estate Zamberlan Cabernet Sangiovese 2016 14.5% 6x75


Price: 125.00

Quantity:

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. It is drinking well now and will improve in the bottle for over a decade.

Primo Estate Joseph Angel Gully Shiraz 2015 14.5% 6x75


Price: 198.00

Quantity:

"95 points. Deep colour; a deliciously savoury, spicy shiraz that stamps its authority and makes its mark from the word go, with the sort of structural integrity more often associated with cabernet than shiraz. The tannins are firm, but ripe and balanced, and entirely in keeping with the overall wine. Will be very long-lived. (James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion
A fabulous single vineyard Shiraz from the Grilli family's Angel Gully vineyard in the McLaren Vale subregion of Clarendon , which produces just one tonne per acre . The Shiraz is hand selected so that only the very best fruit is chosen for this, their flagship Shiraz. A small portion of fruit was air dried (as per the Joseph Moda) to provide an additional degree of complexity.
The wine has an intense bouquet of complex dark red fruits with spicy peppery notes. Concentrated, blueberries and cream flavours swarm around the palate - very juicy but elegant and vibrant. The finish silky rich, with great structure, fine tannins and good length.
It will cellar well for at least a decade from vintage.
Primo Estate’s vineyard in the McLaren Vale subregion of Clarendon is rocky and steep with predominately shale stone soil. The site rises sharply to 300 metres above sea level. The soil and altitude, combined with an intense viticulture regime results in a small crop of evenly ripened fruit, just one tonne per acre. Angel Gully Shiraz is hand selected from a single block of low yielding vines at the pinnacle of the vineyard. A small portion of fruit was air dried to provide an additional degree of complexity.

JOSEPH Sparkling Red both defines and defies its genre: an iconic Australian unlike any of its peers. It confidently stands shoulder to shoulder with the world's classics, and therefore proudly holds top rank in my wine canon'. - Richard Hemming, jancisrobinson.com
96 points James Halliday Australian Wine Guide:"The grand complexity of Joseph meets every expectation of its deep and complex recipe, capturing all the depth and character of McLaren Vale cabernet, merlot and shiraz young and old. A deep purple hue heralds a universe of expansive complexity, spanning primary black plum and black cherry fruit, secondary roast nuts, dark chocolate and coffee and the tertiary allure of black olives. Another great in the grand lineage of Joseph." James Halliday
An Australian icon with dark, brooding opulence and layered complexity nurtured over many years. Creamy and fresh with a super fine bead, this is the modern history of Australian red wine in a bottle. The JOSEPH Sparkling Red is a unique blend of museum vintages from the last forty years combined with a barrel each of the ultra premium JOSEPH Moda Cabernet Merlot and Primo Estate Shiraz added every year since 1989.
After traditional fermentation in the bottle, the JOSEPH Sparkling Red rests on lees. It is then liqueured carefully to ensure a drier style and obtain a perfect balance.
