2020 Bink Big Little Red
Notes from big Koen - he makes the wines:
80% Grenache - Barossa Valley, Vine Vale. 20% Zinfandel - Clare Valley, Watervale. Grenache was the last pick of the season. Came in quite ripe but it was going to the base for a 'bigger' style of wine. 100% de-stemmend, fermented dry in stainless and pressed to french seasoned barrel. Blended the Zinfandel and Grenache almost straight after they went secondary dry (after malo ferment). Wanted to give the heaps of time in barrel to come together. Actually a big little red this year. The Grenache is really dominant with soft jammy berry components and spice driven acids. Zinfandel really makes the wine 'fluid'. Good acidity that brakes all that Barossa dominance.
