2019 Koonowla
Primitivo

An exciting, new varietal offering for Koonowla, coming from one of our prized source blocks in the southern Clare districts near Auburn where we believe it is well suited to deliver a generous wine with loads of rich aromas and flavours. The Primitivo grape is also known as Zinfandel – we have chosen to go with its European/ Mediterranean name which resonates with our family traditions and preferred wine styles.

Tasting Notes

Colour

Dark garnet to purple, promising the variety’s favoured opulence

Aroma

Christmas cake and plum pudding, with a minerally backdrop

Palate

The unique aromatics are echoed as soon as you taste the wine, with compote plum, fruit cake and baking spices all working in harmony. Even with such a generous flavour profile and plush, mouth-rich tannins, the wine drinks with medium to fuller bodied ease.

Food

Rich protein dishes with aromatic spices, ranging from braised lamb in a Middle Eastern style to Chinese hot pot and South-East Asian beef.
