Zinfandel Wines

Zinfandel, also known as Primitivo is a variety of a black skinned grape, grown in over 10 percent of Californian vineyards. The grapes typically produce a robust red wine, and in the United States a semi-sweet rosé wine called White Zinfandel has six times as many sales as the red wine.

 

The taste of the red wine depends on the ripeness of the grapes: red berry fruit flavours dominate in wines from cooler areas, whereas blackberry, anise and pepper notes are more common in wines made in warmer areas and in wines made from the earlier-ripening Primitivo clone.
