We love this because...

It’s Zinfandel but not as you typically know it. Here the emphasis is on elegance over power with fresh blackberry fruit, white pepper and rose petals replacing the jammy plum and clove notes of so many overblown examples. Light on its feet but packing a real characterful punch this is a whole new take on the variety.

The grapes from both sites are picked early to retain acidity and freshness. The process in the winery is quite simple with the grapes completely destemmed and then fermented in a mix of concrete and stainless steel before pressing and aging in neutral French oak for 10 months.

As with all the Broc wines there’s no use of any commercial yeasts or enzymes during the winemaking process and only a minimal addition of sulphur before bottling. The resulting wine stands apart from the crowd as a Zin of real individuality and character packed  with crunchy blackberry fruit, pepper spice and a cool, refreshing structure.
