Interesting wine. As much savoury as fruit-driven... Well priced, made and presented.
About the 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.
