Odonata Wines 2018 Dessert Zinfandel, San Antonio Valley
Vineyard: Wellong Vineyard is traditionally head trained and was planted in 1999. The heirloom Zinfandel is from a cutting dating back to the 1890s. For Odonata, this is their first 100% Zinfandel, with many more to come.
Winemaking: At harvest 29.0 Brix 3.9ph
Punched down gently throughout the cold soak, fermentation, and maceration totaling 7 days. Pressed to a stainless tank where we added 20 gallons of high-proof alcohol to stop the fermentation and leave this wine with 8% sugar.
Finished wine: 19.12% alc., aged in 33% New French Oak
Notes: Sweet berry, mocha, and touch of sage. This is a very balanced expression of Dessert Wine, which allows it to be enjoyed on its own or added to any dessert you like!
