Zinfandel 2020


Stonecroft has the oldest Zinfandel vines in New Zealand. The vines were planted in 1993 and originated from Ravenswood in California. Hawke’s Bay is a relatively cool climate, so our Zinfandel is a medium bodied wine. We have just a few rows of Zinfandel at our Roy’s Hill Vineyard.
