Californian Zinfandel usually has a high alcohol content, often 14% or above, as does its Italian counterpart, Primitivo which is traditionally grown in the heat of southern Italy.
Our Zinfandel is grown in Lodi, in California’s Central Valley, which is renowned for Zinfandel wines, with wine grapes making their way to the area during the Gold Rush. The mix of sweet fruit and spice makes Zinfandel a perfect bottle for anything on the grill, barbequed meats or dark chocolate desserts.
When Zinfandel wine ages, it sometimes tastes “hot” (predominantly alcoholic) and is often at its best within 3-5 years of its vintage.
