So, two firsts for “Grape Observer” then: my first post on a zinfandel and my first post on a wine from Mudgee, which I confess I had to resort to Google Maps to locate. It is in central New South Wales.
This wine is pretty good. It is not the alcoholic monster that some zinfandels I have tried have constituted. Instead, aromas of anise and red stone fruit, were met on the palate with length, fruit cake and red currant flavours. I really couldn’t fault this wine and it’s quite enjoyable, yet I could summon no particular desire to return to it. Tasted blind, it seemed neither one thing, nor another. 85 points (7/10)
