Seghesio Old Vine Zinfandel Sonoma County 2012

£32.99

 GOLD - SWA 2016

TASTING NOTE

Deeply perfumed aromas of dark berries and old vine Zinfandel’s woody spiciness. Layered bright fruit flavours reminiscent of a rich berry pie with a toasted crust. A vibrant acidity and balanced tannins thanks to low yields in the vineyard which continue through the long, persistent finish.

Grapes were primarily estate-grown from vineyards in Alexander Valley and Dry Creek Valley.  Aggressive hand canopy management was maintained with a green harvest, weak shoot removal and veraison thinning performed to ensure even ripening. 

Harvest took place by hand between the 19th of September and the 13th of October. The grapes were punched down by hand in small open-top fermenters.. Fermentation on the skins lasted nine days. The wine was barrel aged for 14 months in 100% French oak (20% of which were new barrels).
