Oak Ridge Winery Maggio Lodi Old Vines Zinfandel 2020

Deep and rich, this wine shows a full and intense flavour
of fleshy black cherry with mellow jam and chocolate
overtones.
Producer Note
For five generations the Maggio family has been growing wine grapes in Lodi, and
providing elite California winemakers with superb fruit to make their wines. In 2002, the
family turned their own hand to winemaking, using the same estate grown fruit that
they had sold for so many years. Now they proudly put their name on bottles that
reflect their long and uncompromising commitments to sustainable agriculture and
winemaking excellence.
Vineyard
The grapes come from 500 acres of estate vineyards throughout the Lodi American
Viticultural Area, which are situated between the Sierra Nevada foothills and the San
Francisco Bay. The area's Mediterranean climate of warm days with coastal evening
breezes is ideal for the cultivation of world-class wine grapes. The vines, some of which
are over 100 years old, are gnarled and sculpted by time, yielding small amounts of
intensely flavoured fruit to create wines that are the ultimate expression of their terroir.
Winemaking
The Old Zinfandel grapes were picked at 25 to 26° Brix, for optimum ripeness, acidity
levels and quality. The grapes were cool fermented at 18 to 23°C, in order to slowly
extract the colour and tannins, while retaining the fresh fruit characters. Once
fermented through to dryness, the grapes were pressed off their skins and allowed to
settle prior to racking. The wine then went through malolactic fermentation, giving the
final wine a smooth mouthfeel and softening the finish. Once complete, a proportion of
the wine was matured in various oak treatments for between six months, until it
reached the desired profile of oak complexity, while the remainder was stored in
stainless steel. 60% of the oak component used was medium to heavy toast American
oak and 40% of the oak was medium toast French oak.
