Zinful is made in a fruit-driven, Primitivo style, similar to the way it is made in its homeland of southern Italy. Part of this process is to age the wine in old oak barrels so as not to obscure the wonderful spice and berry fruit characters. A lovely ‘with food’ style.

Winery Tasting Notes


Clear, bright, rich garnet.


First splash into my glass releases lovely ripe red berry fruit notes. Raspberry, sweet plum. Mmm, here comes the vanilla. A good swirl and I'm in forest berry jam land and there's a fleeting floral note I can't quite put my finger on. Pretty though. Let it sit and I'm marvelling at cinnamon and mixed spice. (I'm feeling pretty chuffed about this wine - so expressive. Feeling quite proud of my husband winemaker too and I'm often his harshest critic!)


The fruit and spice carries through to the palate with some pepper tickling around. Sweet juicy fruit up front, full mouthfeel with some mouth watering acidity. And then, those tannins that we often see in Italian varietals; they have a savoury edge that simply make you want to keep drinking.

Food Matching

I'm thinking this wine would go beautifully with a creamy risotto or pasta. I'm also thinking this is a beautiful wine!


Tasted May 2014 - Now is a great time in this wine's life! Drinking fabulously or age for another couple of years.

Mark Messenger has been nominated for GOURMET TRAVELLER WINE 2014

Margaret River is home to many wonderful things—pristine beaches, stunning Karri forest, ornate limestone caves and one of Australia's best examples of Zinfandel.

Zinful is a wine crafted from Zinfandel grapes. It takes a master to bring out the very best that this variety has to offer and gifted winemaker, Mark Messenger, works his magic to produce a wine that is both spicy and juicy, full-bodied yet soft, and seamlessly satisfying in every way.

Let this wine take you on a journey. Experience flavours that you may not have seen in a wine before and textures that leave you questioning, how a wine can be so sweet and juicy in the mouth, yet still have a savoury edge?

Zinful has been made with food in mind and will stand-up well against some of the more robust flavours of winter’s hearty fare or summer’s antipasto delicacies. All-year-round favourites—pizza, char-grilled meats, roasts, and ripe, sumptuous cheeses—become all the more delectable with a glass of Zinful.
