Tasting notes: BIG TOP White Zinfandel
BIG TOP White Zinfandel is major crowd pleaser from the Golden State! Luscious strawberry ice cream on the nose supported by a bright, berry fruited palate and an off-dry finish. Hugely juicy!
Serve chilled and drink with friends.
Selected from old vine vineyards in the Lodi region of central California. 100% zinfandel grapes, lightly crushed to create a pretty pink wine. Vinified in stainless steel tanks.
Boutinot has been working with growers in California for over 10 years, finessing their offering from vintage to vintage, increasingly with specific estates sourcing old vine material and site-specific fruit.
The current range of wines are sourced from the warm region of Lodi in Central California, to which Samantha Bailey brings her esteemed palate and decades experience to hone these elements into the brightest wines of The Sunshine State.
Zinfandel is lighter in colour than both Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. However, although a light-bodied red wine like Pinot Noir, Zin’s moderate tannin and high acidity make it taste bold. Generally speaking, most Zinfandel wines have higher alcohol levels ranging from about 14 – 17% ABV.
Higher alcohol adds an oily texture and bigger, bolder body.
