WINE OF THE MONTH

May 2017

   

    2013 Zin of Steel

 
(100% Zinfandel)
Bailey Ranch  Vineyard, Adelaida AVA
 

Summer is almost upon us and nothing sips better when firing up the grill than a chilled glass of Zin “Nouveau”. Dry-farmed, head pruned Zinfandel primarily fermented in stainless steel and bottled.  This wine begs a chill and enjoying it whilst grilling sausages, a juicy lamb burger or simply a shmear of goat cheese on crusty baguette.  

These grapes hail from the acclaimed Bailey Ranch Vineyard in the rugged hills of the Adelaida District. The grapes are picked at a lower brix (sugar) level to retain acidity; they are then crushed and go through maceration most like any red wine. However, after maceration and primary ferment completes, these wines are bottled. There is no secondary malo-lactic ferment, nor any barrel aging. This wine is meant to be drunk in the same fashion as a white wine. Yet with a firm tannin structure and brilliant acidity, this wine has evolved over the last few years into something really special.
