2010 Kangarilla Road Black St Peters Zinfandel

kangarilla zinfGeez, three Australian wines with at least some Zinfandel/Primitivo in them tasted so far this month. It’s thrown me for a loop let me tell you. Black St Peters was the name given to Zinfandel during the mid-1800s in the USA when it was still sold as a table grape.

A bit more Californian in style (I’m allowed to say that because California isn’t an Old World producer). Sweet aromas, sweet palate. Xmas cake, raspberry coulis, macerated cherries, a little black bramble and some cinnamon and cloves. Licorice as well. Smooth with a ripple of soft tannin. No dead fruit. I can see the appeal. 90 Good
