Turley Single Site Zinfandel
Last year we were lucky enough to obtain some small parcels of very hard-to-find Turley Zinfandels from some of their more exclusive vineyards. Anyone who tried one will know of the remarkable quality associated with Turley wines in general, but these single vineyard wines are on another level. We have new vintages of two Turley wines we had last year, Dusi and Duarte, but have managed to snag a further parcel of their magnificent Howell Mountain ‘Dragon Vineyard’ Zinfandel. If you enjoy a more powerful drop of spicy red with more than its fair share of individuality then these are for you. And us of course!
2012 “Duarte Vineyard” Zinfandel (Contra Costa County) £ 34.99
2012 “Dusi Vineyard” Zinfandel (Paso Robles) £42.99
2012 “Dragon Vineyard” Zinfandel (Howell Mountain) £ 45.99

Some fine berried fruit aromas with nice leather and spice notes. Deceptively full with some nicely controlled power. Good acidity and ripe tannins, with classic Southern Hemisphere Malbec character. Mulberries, bramble fruit and leather flavours, with an impressive structure for the price.
