Notes

‘California Zinfandel has re-surfaced from the murky depths with a fresher face and greater poise,’ wrote Decanter magazine recently when punting the Fog Monster Bedrock Red; a radical new-wave red produced from 125-year-old vines and made by Andrea Mullineux. Chris and Andrea, Wine Enthusiast's Winemaker of the Year and originally from California, have been sourcing unique vineyards in the Sierra Foothills that are exposed to interesting climatic conditions. In particular, the fog that rolls in from the Pacific Ocean. We are excited to have stock of the sensational Fog Monster wines. Fog Monster wines is from Amador County in California (Sierra Foothills).

The Moss Zinfandel is all you want from a Zin – spice, bright fruit, herbs and richness without the high alcohol and Coca-Cola sweetness. It is new-wave California wine at its best with beautiful clarity and a fine depth that mirrors the Mullineux’s style. Delicious, refined and rewarding with plenty of structure for cellaring.

Tasting notes:
'From a 125-year-old vineyard. Made with the intention of creating a new-wave expression of the variety but still makes a big impact. The nose shows black and blue fruit, incense and a touch of reduction. The palate is full bodied with dense fruit, fresh acidity and firm tannins. Slightly hot on the finish – alcohol is 14.2%'. – Christian Eedes, Winemag, 90/100
