Discover the Zesty Elixir: Lemon Vodka Unveiled

Indulging in the world of spirits, one cannot help but marvel at the exquisite blend of flavours that ignite the senses. Among these delightful concoctions, lemon vodka stands out as a zesty elixir that has garnered an ever-growing fan base. Renowned for its refreshing taste and versatility, lemon vodka has found its place in the hearts of both seasoned connoisseurs and casual enthusiasts alike.

The Essence of Lemon Vodka:

Lemon vodka is a flavored variant of the classic clear spirit, vodka. It undergoes a meticulous infusion process, combining notes of dry aniseed/rye spice from barley, with the zesty spritz of candied lemon. The result is a delightful fusion of the vodka's purity and the invigorating essence of lemon scented gum, producing a libation that captures the spirit of summer in every sip.

A Symphony of Flavors:

The allure of lemon vodka lies in its multifaceted flavour profile. As you raise the glass to your lips, you're greeted with an invigorating burst of citrus that enlivens the palate. The tangy notes of lemon intermingle seamlessly with the vodka's smoothness, striking a perfect balance between sweet and sour.

Versatility in Mixology:

One of the key reasons behind lemon vodka's soaring popularity is its remarkable versatility in mixology. Its zesty character serves as an excellent base for a plethora of cocktails, ranging from the classic Lemon Drop Martini to the ever-popular Vodka Sour. When paired with a medley of fresh fruits or herb-infused syrups, lemon vodka transforms into a symphony of flavours that tantalize taste buds and leave a lasting impression.

A Sip of Refreshment:

Lemon vodka is not only favoured in cocktails but also enjoyed on its own. Neat or on the rocks, this delightful spirit offers a crisp and revitalizing experience that is unparalleled. It serves as the perfect companion during hot summer days, offering a cooling respite that awakens the senses and adds a touch of sunshine to any gathering.

Savor the Experience:

In conclusion, lemon vodka stands as a testament to the innovation and creativity that the world of spirits continues to embrace. With its zesty and invigorating essence, this delightful elixir caters to the diverse palates of spirit enthusiasts and cocktail aficionados. Whether sipped neat, enjoyed in a cocktail, or infused into culinary delights, lemon vodka promises a truly unforgettable experience. So, raise your glass, savor the citrusy notes, and embark on a journey of pure refreshment with every sip of this zesty elixir. Saluti!

Tasting Notes

The 2023 Zonzo Estate Chardonnay is a captivating wine that embodies the region's cool climate and our vineyard’s distinct terroir. Its pale yellow colour with green hues reflects the wine's youthful vibrancy. On the nose, an expressive bouquet of ripe citrus fruits, such as lemon and grapefruit, intertwines with delicate notes of white flowers and minerality. These aromas create a complex and enticing first impression. As the wine unfolds on the palate, the wine's crisp acidity provides a refreshing counterpoint to the barrel ferment and fruit characters, creating a beautifully balanced structure. The flavours are intense and layered, with citrus notes leading the charge, followed by ripe stone fruit flavours reminiscent of white nectarine and grapefruit. Subtle hints of oak add a touch of complexity and structure, integrating seamlessly with the fruit flavours. The finish of the 2023 Zonzo Estate Chardonnay is long and lingering, leaving a lasting impression on the palate. A refreshing minerality lingers in the mouth, providing a sense of elegance and finesse. The wine's overall profile showcases the unique characteristics of our Estate and its distinctive sense of place.

Process

Harvested in March 2023. Hand picked, with a portion machine picked.

Pressed to tank and for settling. Racked off before racking with healthy grape solids and warming. Juice was then transferred to oak for fermetation.

18% Wild Ferment commenced in oak after 3-5 days and was completed within 13 days. The balance inoculated with 3 different yeasts.

Approximately 50% went through malolactic fermentation.
