Savour a mouthful of succulent ripe strawberries with whiffs of mulled spice in Grande Provence Zinfandel 2015, the new opulent red wine just released with a hot-blooded temperament akin to the vineyards of southern Italy.

The 2015 Zinfandel is one of the first Grande Provence wines to step out in a fresh new look with muted colour tones that reflect their heritage and quality.

Known as Primitivo in the “heel” of Italy but made fashionable as Zinfandel in California, this black skinned grape variety thrives in warmer climates. The grapes for the Grande Provence Zinfandel, the second vintage crafted in the Franschhoek cellar, come from the slopes of Groenberg in Wellington.

“The warmer Wellington conditions allow a bright fruit forward wine with a great balance of colour and soft tannins from gentle winemaking techniques in the cellar,” says Grande Provence Cellarmaster, Matthew van Heerden.

Barrel matured for one year in French and American oak, the palate is fresh with great acidity supported by deliciously supple tannins.

This big wine stands up well to hearty casseroles and game dishes. It also goes down beautifully with liquor-filled dark chocolate truffles.

With the maiden 2013 vintage, made in a small batch from just four barrels, only available exclusively at the Estate, the new 2015 Zinfandel can be purchased from the tasting room and selected boutique wine shops.

For added convenience, buy this wine online from http://www.grandeprovence.co.za" target_blank at a cellar door price of R150. Purchases of 12 bottles or more qualify for free delivery anywhere in South Africa.
