About The Wine
The Infidels is Primitivo/Zinfindel from the immaculate Inkwell vineyard in McLaren Vale.
Over the last few vintages, it has garnered a reputation for being one of the country's most drinkable/loveable Primitivos. It sells out the fastest of all the Inkwell wines each year and rightfully so. The 2017 release looks in great form.
The oak is set firmly to the background, the perky red fruits and spice of this variety on display for all to see. The fruit weight, tannin, and acidity playing perfectly with each other.
Dudley thinks it's a little lighter and fresher, which is when this wine is at its best.
Husband and wife duo Dudley Brown and Dr. Irina Santiago-Brown of Inkwell Wines in McLaren Vale, are true advocates of sustainable farming practices and are self confessedly “fanatical about (their) vines and wines.”
The Inkwell Wines are all produced from their beautiful organically farmed vineyard while the Dubstyle wines are a range designed as a way for them to stretch their winemaking wings beyond the reaches of their home vineyard.
They've found some stunning vineyards in the surrounding areas to source from, they make the wines at their home in McLaren Vale, then like any great music track, they mix and blend the certain parts until the wine 'sounds' just right.
Inkwell wines have a signature power and strength which does their home region proud.
