Winery Tasting Notes


The appearance is deep inky red with dense purple hues on the rim and long, viscous legs coating the glass.


The bouquet is full of ripe blackberry, mulberry and dark plum fruit with a savoury background of smokehouse meats, dusty earth and a hint of chocolate. Rich oak is evident and harmoniously balanced with the intense fruit.


The opening palate is intense with ripe plum and blackberry fruit then builds with spicy licorice, vanillin oak and white pepper. The mid palate has plump juicy tannins which give a silky voluptuous texture. The mouth-feel builds with a dry earthiness leading to a long finish with deep herbal notes and warm chocolaty aftertaste.

Food Matching

This is a big wine for hearty cuisine. Slow roast casseroles, thick juicy steaks and rich game dishes are excellent while firm cheeses and water crackers are ideal after the meal.

Cellaring Potential

This is a true Reserve style wine which will deliver excellent drinking over a decade of cellaring. From release it offers an intense flavour experience which will continue to develop and gain complexity as it matures in bottle.

Winery Profile

Jozef was born and raised on the banks of the Silnica River in 1923 in Kielce, a small southern provincial town in Lesser Poland. With a background in agriculture and farming but with an interest in brewing by the late 1940’s he had become an experienced Vodka brewer.

Immigrating to Australia in 1950, as an experienced spirit producer, Jozef gained work in the agricultural/viticultural industry. With exposure to the wine industry in Australia over the succeeding years he developed a passion for winemaking and up to his passing in 1986 had produced many Ziernik Private Family vintages.In 1990, Glenn Ziernik, following in his Grandfather’s footsteps, entered the wine industry while studying at University and is now a wine producer with Wine Vintners. Glenn’s fascination for the industry is as passionate as his Grandfather’s and you too can now enjoy Glenn’s handcrafted wines from McLaren Vale, one of Australia’s great wine regions.
