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.

Critic Reviews

The Win Front

"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)

Additional Info

From the Producer

Lo Zingaro, or The Gypsy, is a synergistic blend of four distinctly different varieties. The medium yet juicy dark fruits of Shiraz provide richness; the bright lifted red berries of Sangiovese for charm; Aglianico adds the feral, nervy tarry savoury characters; and Lagrein the structure and dense, dark berries. All come together for a rich, succulent, harmonious, yet savoury wine.

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. Not as far flung as where they grow in their home turf but still a decent day out.

The individual parcels were all fermented separately, as they are picked at very different times between the end of March through to the end of April. Each batch spent some reasonable time on skins, for when the looked the tastiest. Shiraz 14 days, Lagrein 5 weeks, Sangiovese 5 weeks and Aglianico 3 months.
