Winery Tasting Notes
Deep dark red colour.
Lifted notes of dates, plum and spice.
A powerful full bodied palate wrapped up in silky tannins. Concentrated flavours of spice, raisin, plum and cedar oak mingle with fine dusty tannins that continue the lenght of the palate, a lasting and persistent finish.
Serve at 16 degrees Celsius. Perfect with char-grilled rump and confit of garlic.
Damien prefers zinfandels young, and as such recommends that the 2008 The Curse be drunk over the next 5 years.
Winemaking The fruit is crushed and fermented in open top fermenters with regular pump overs - two per day. Fermentation was followed by 7 days extended maceration. The wine was pressed in a basket press and then racked to barrel for maturation and secondary malolactic fermentation.
