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 from Amador County CA (Sierra Foothills) is a project of Andrea and Chris Mullineux of Mullineux and Leeu in the Swartland.

Andrea, originally from California, and Chris have been sourcing unique vineyards in the Sierra Foothills, which are exposed to interesting climatic conditions, particularly the fog rolling in from the Pacific Ocean.

Wine makers notes:
‘This is a predominantly Zinfandel field blend, with about 12 other varieties, from Morgan Twain Peterson's historic 125-year-old Bedrock vineyard. Planted by General Sherman and General Hooker. The wine is serious and structured [with] not too much extraction. This again was a mostly whole-cluster fermentation. Just 560 bottles.’ – Chris Mullineux

Tasting notes:
'Grapes from a 128-year-old field blend vineyard: 55% Zinfandel, 20% Carignan plus approximately 25 other varieties. A forthcoming and very appealing nose of red and black berries, floral fragrance and spice. The palate is light bodied and fresh with fine tannins – complex and beautifully poised'. – Christian Eedes, Winemag, 93/100
