You are invited to come down and celebrate Global Zinfandel Day this Friday. From 4pm we’ll have two sample bottles open to showcase this grape varietal.
One will be a Californian Zin from Cline Cellars and the other will be Canaletto Primitivo. It was long thought that Zinfandel was indigenous to California but genetic testing has proved that it is the same grape as Italian Primitivo that is grown mainly in the Puglia region (the heel of Italy).
In the spirit of a “Global” celebration, we invite you to compare wines from the two regions most associated with this varietal.
Domaine Marcilhac Cuvée Prestige – super French red from Cahors the spiritual home of Malbec. Tasted this last month and thought it ideal for Malbec fans interested in expanding their horizons. 100% Cot noir (malbec). Produced and bottled en domaine.
Ironstone Reserve Rous Vineyard Old Vine Zinfandel – Tasted this at the Zinfandel Advocates and Producers (ZAP) tasting and was simply the best of the eight super wines presented in my opinion. This is a single vineyard product produced from vines planted in 1909. Perfect Christmas present for the Zin Fan – not widely available either.
Bleasdale Langhorne Crossing Generations Shiraz – A rich, cellarable Aussie red. Will be opening a bottle for tasting Christmas week.
Will have lots of new wines at end of this week and in next 3 weeks too. Swing by and check out our selection
