Unveiling the Decoy Zinfandel: A Feast for the Senses

Visual: The Decoy Zinfandel pours a deep, inky purple with garnet hues, hinting at the richness that awaits.

Aroma: As the wine opens up in the glass, a captivating bouquet of aromas unfolds. Ripe blackberries, juicy wild blueberries, and plump plums take centre stage, interwoven with hints of blackcurrant for a touch of complexity. The influence of oak ageing adds subtle notes of cedar and baking spice, creando a harmonious and inviting fragrance.

Palate: The first sip of Decoy Zinfandel reveals a luxuriously textured wine. The vibrant dark berry flavours from the nose explode on the palate, supported by a core of ripe, velvety tannins. These tannins provide a pleasant structure without overwhelming the fruit, creating a beautifully balanced and smooth mouthfeel. Hints of peppery spice linger on the finish, adding a touch of intrigue and leaving you wanting more.

A Food Pairing Symphony

The Decoy Zinfandel's bold fruit character and balanced structure make it a versatile food pairing partner. Here are some exceptional matches to elevate your dining experience:

  • Grilled meats: The robust flavours of the Zinfandel stand up perfectly to grilled meats like lamb chops, ribeye steak, or barbecued chicken.
  • Hearty stews: Rich stews such as lamb stew or a hearty beef bourguignon find a perfect match in the Decoy Zinfandel. The wine's fruitiness complements the savoury elements of the dish, while the tannins help cut through the richness.
  • Hard cheeses: Pair the Zinfandel with mature cheddar cheese or a robust blue cheese for a delightful contrast. The wine's fruitiness cuts through the creaminess of the cheese, creating a harmonious and satisfying combination.
  • Spicy cuisine: The Zinfandel's peppery notes make it a great companion to spicy dishes like Szechuan cuisine or Thai curries. The wine's fruitiness helps balance the heat, while the tannins provide a welcome structure.
