A deliciously juicy red wine from the south of Italy. Primitivo is arguably more well known in other parts of the world by its alter-ego Zinfandel, although genetically the same, Primitivo has its own genuine Italian character. This is a lovely rich, ripe and round style with red and dark fruits accompanied by floral and herb notes.

5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit (2017 Vintage)
"Wonderfully fruited and instantly appealing, the gorgeous bouquet shows Black Doris plum, blackberry, cocoa, mixed spice and hazelnut aromas, followed by a beautifully weighted palate that is ripe and plump. The wine offers delectable fruit flavours backed by silky texture and rounded tannins, making it highly enjoyable. At its best: now to 2021."
Sue Courtney, wineoftheweek.com (2017 Vintage)
"Bright red black in the glass. Crushed dark chocolate biscuits and jammy red fruits shimmy through the slightly rustic scent with underlying savouriness, a touch of earth and plum and dark cherry fruit in the fine silky-textured palate. Oozing with succulence and flavour, a perennial favourite that delivers what you expect from this label."
