- The Home of Artisan Australian Wine!
Sam Scott comes at blending with gusto. His ethos allows him to paint complete pictures with as many colours as they need without being hamstrung by convention. Liberated winemaking. Walking to the beat of his own drum, sometimes in his own part of town. And so I give you, _Lo Zingaro_. The name Lo Zingaro translates to "The Gypsy". The fruit in this eclectic blend is an unlikely meeting of Shiraz, Sangiovese, Aglianico and Largein. "The majority of the blend (90%) is from the Adelaide Hills - Shiraz and Sangiovese from Macclesfield, Aglianico from Kersbrook and the interloper, Lagrein, is from the southern Barossa." explains the man behind it. Campbell Mattinson thought it "Well priced, made and presented." in his 92 point review. This is a fascinating wine, perfect for the curious wine drinker who is always looking to try something new.
What it Tastes Like
"Interesting wine. As much savoury as fruit-driven, though you wouldn’t say it’s lacking in the latter area. Nut shells, chicory, black coffee, black cherries and assorted spices. Acidity is a key feature but it doesn’t intrude. A bit ferrous and a bit of (dry) liquorice too. More class than weight. Well priced, made and presented." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
