Joel Gott Californian Zinfandel

Sold Out!

This smart Californian import has been a big hit since we first stocked a couple of months ago. At $20 Joel Gott Zinfandel well and truly overdelivers. Far from being a big, overextracted zinfandel, it's bright and punchy, laden with cherry fruit, and has a particularly plush and supple mouthfeel. Sure, it is 14% but handles this with ease.

The deep but clear ruby colour puts you in the mood and then the mouth-watering aromas of cherry, plus a touch of Aussie vegemite, make it even more appetising. On the palate, it is soft and smooth with some savoury herbs mingling with the cherry and fine chalky tannins on the finish. It seems to become more complex with each sip.

All round, it is a great drop, and would make an interesting addition to your list of favourite everyday and barbecue wines.


Pinot Shop is located in Launceston, Tasmania, Australia at 135 Paterson Street down at the river end near Cataract Gorge, Stillwater Restaurant and The Mill Providore.
