Zinfandel

It has only recently been established that the Zinfandel, made famous in California, is in fact one and the same variety as the Primitivo of Apulia in Italy. As a variety in California it has often been encouraged to over-produce in climates too hot to afford it the longer, cooler ripening period it prefers. It also became ubiquitous in terms of blush rosé production.

Characteristics: As a red wine in the right hands and climate it is capable of achieving wonderfully intense reds full of brambly fruit with rich almost peppery character. Rich, round, ripe sometimes spicy. As a blush rosé the wine is usually medium, light and fruity.

Where is it found? California, Western Australia, Italy.

Wines associated: USA

Food matches: Grilled meats, cheese, pasta, tomato based dishes

La Gitana Manzanilla, Bodegas Hidalgo
La Gitana Manzanilla, Bodegas Hidalgo
“La Gitana” is an absolutely classic example of this unique wine; it is beautifully balanced, fresh and delicate with a “touche” of sea-saltiness and a pure, nutty-fruit zestiness.

Vacqueyras Cuve Doucinello 2011
Recently, Robert Parker put Serge’s wines in to the superstar category but, typical of the man, he has maintained our allocation just as it was before, despite phenomenal demand from the USA.
