Maitre de Chai Zinfandel Stampede 2021


no added sulfur

Country: USA

Region: Lodi

Type: Red Wine

Grape: Zinfandel

Planted in the 1920s, the Stampede Vineyard is an own-rooted Zinfandel parcel in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains within Lodi’s Clements Hills AVA. The Perlegos family impeccably farms this distinct piece of earth with soils comprised of decomposed granite. The vineyard overlooks the old southern embankment of the Mokelumne River on one side, and the Clements Stampede rodeo on the other. The wine was fermented with native yeast in a mix of open top, whole cluster and barrel fermentations. After 16 months in cask the wine was and bottled unfined and unfiltered with the minimum effective addition of sulfur.

A well-balanced, powerful yet elegant Zinfandel.
