The Big Top Zinfandel rouge 2018
Round and rich with excellent poise, great depth of flavour and a spicy kick.
What we say
This wine is a fantastic pair for beef, lamb or hard cheeses, but don’t let that stop you from cracking a bottle and settling in on the sofa. Oozing smooth, peppery drinkability – your only concern is going to be getting up to find another bottle.
What they say
Aromas of vanilla, cracked black pepper and dark damson fruit. On the palate this wine is round and fleshy, beautifully balanced and packed full with robust red fruit flavours and a lick of oak.
