Rapid Crossing Zinfandel, 2021

SKU: BLUE-RC21

It’s a privilege to drink Barossa Zinfandel; it’s a rare beast. Heaven knows why! This is a strapping red, but it has a silken texture crammed full of ripe berries, star anise and vanilla. Get out the mature cheddar and put these two together.”

History

Colonel William Light, founder of Adelaide and first Surveyor-General of South Australia, traversed our estate on 13th December 1837, when exploring the north-east of Adelaide. On this historic occasion, he named our town Lyndoch and the surrounding hills Barossa. The Barossa Colonel Light Monument, a life-size bronze statue of Colonel Light on horseback, and the iconic Barossa Manor commemorate the birthplace of the world-famous Barossa wine region on our estate. Generations of our winemakers have dedicated their work to this grand tradition, embodying our heritage of outstanding winemaking in every bottle.

This wine is named after the first fleet brigantine “Rapid” on which Colonel Light arrived in South Australia in 1836. Those who sailed from England aboard the Rapid, among them William Jacob, referred to him as “Captain Light” because he was Captain for its voyage from London to South Australia.
