Kemblefield The Reserve Zinfandel

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
Still on sale, the 2002 vintage of this Hawke's Bay wine was estate-grown at Mangatahi and matured for 18 months in French oak casks. Full-coloured, it's a robust red (14.5 per cent alcohol) with brambly, plummy, spicy flavours showing very good depth and some leathery complexity. A concentrated but green-edged wine, it needs a tad more ripeness and warmth.

Michael Cooper (2000 Vintage) says
Only the second 'commercial' release of 'Zin' in New Zealand, the 2000 vintage of this Hawke's Bay red was estate-grown at Mangatahi and matured for 15 months in French oak casks. Full, although not dense, in colour, with berry fruits and a hint of pepper on the nose, it's a brambly wine with smooth raspberry and spice flavours and good concentration and complexity.
