2020 Koonowla
Primitivo

Koonowla wines comes from a very special place in our hearts, their home one of the Clare Valley’s thriving historic treasures.

Primitivo (aka Zinfandel) reveals an exciting new chapter to our story: A variety that excels in our vineyard and turns up the volume when it comes to bold red wine.

Ripe, opulent and robust with country-baked fruit cake flavours, soaked with generous oak characters and richness. Unforgettable pleasure.

Tasting Notes

Colour

Vibrant crimson

Aroma

Ripe red grape, fruit cake, earthy undertones.

Palate

Robust styling from the outset, the aromatics setting a pathway to a chewy, rich palate of sweet, plump fruit soaked in 20% new American oak (the remainder older French barrels) that dial up maximum flavours and mouth-filling textural layers. Designed for fans of big-muscle red wine.

Food

Chinese and South East Asian spiced beef or lamb. Chickpea and root vegetable couscous.
