About the wine

Sam's first ever Naked Zinfandel
  • This is a red lover’s dream, full bodied and rich. It’s big, juicy and satisfying, with lovely hints of spice, strawberries and violets.
  • Sam jumped at the chance to get some of the most sought after Zinfandel in Australia to turn it into liquid gold. By taking different grape parcels and fermenting them in slightly different ways, he’s added in layers of delicious complexity.
  • This wine was made without any oak, so you can know that the fruit will do all the talking.

Serving advice
Serve at 16- 18°C

Food match
This is a versatile food matching wine. Most red meat dishes, (but perhaps not the heartiest of red meat dishes as the tannins are supple rather than the grainy drying tannins which demand things like ossobuco.). Mum makes a delicious lasagna - plenty of meat sauce topped with salty cheese, share a bottle of Zin and life is pretty good!

Meet the winemaker - Sam Plunkett

  • Legend is a word we sometimes overuse, but in Sam's case, it's true. Over in Oz he’s regarded as one of their greatest living winemakers. Getting on for a thousand medals and trophies to his name, including the daddy of them all – the Best Shiraz in Australia Trophy at the 2010 Great Australian Shiraz Challenge.
  • Yet if you met him, you’d probably mistake him for the gardener. He’s one of the most down-to-earth, approachable blokes you’ll ever meet. He wears a beat-up old hat and drives a beat-up old pick up, and when he’s not in the vineyard, you’re likely to find him up a ladder with a wrench in his hand.
  • From being in a pretty sticky situation back in 2011 when he was unexpectedly bought-out by his business partner, Sam has just achieved his lifetime dream; he’s converted an old textile factory into his very own gleaming high-tech winery and it’s all thanks to Angel funding!
