Winemaker's Tasting Notes

Our white zinfandel is not your typical white zinfandel!  The perfect balance of acidity and sweetness helps to showcase the tropical fruit and strawberry notes of this wine.  It's delicate pink color may fool you until you take a sip and discover the intense fruitiness ready to jump out from your glass.  It is hands down one of our most popular wines!


How We Make It

White Zinfandel is simply a Rose of Zinfandel grapes, stylistically made to be a little on the sweet side.  The color of a red wine comes from the skins of the grapes, while the pulp and juice is nearly colorless.   To make our white zinfandel we press the grapes in their whole, non crushed form so that minimal color is picked up from the skins.  The grape juice is then fermented at an extremely cold temperature in order to give it the amazing tropical fruit aromas, and by a process called "arrested fermentation" we stop the fermentation when there is a generous amount of sweetness left.  This results in a perfect white zinfandel with no added sugar or concentrate that some other wineries use in their white zinfandel wines...
