Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

The appearance is an opaque inky black with deep indigo hues at the edge of the glass.

Aroma

The primary fruit character is black currant with strong herbaceous elements of capsicum and mint. Well integrated toasty oak compliments with cigar box, cedar wood and tobacco notes. Heady alcohol spirit gives a sweet glycerol complexity.

Palate

The palate has plums and blackcurrant fruit building to a robust mid palate full of herbal, vegetative flavours entwined with typical cedar wood and earthy charred oak, vanilla and spice. The tannins are solid with a fine grained texture giving a firm dry finish. It’s a robust wine with a tight tannin profile and lingering smooth dry finish and delicious aftertaste.

Food Matching

This wine is lovely drinking right now and rewards some gentle breathing before serving. It makes a great match to juicy steak or beef and is delicious with tasty vintage cheese.

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.
