      All about white zinfandel

      White zinfandel wine is made mainly in Croatia, Italy and California. Wine connoisseurs all over the world enjoy its fine taste of sweet fruits and smoked spices. Aged in cellars for five to 10 years, white zinfandel carries the distinctive sugary touch of strawberry, blackberry and peach. Pair it with pork chops, roasted lamb, salmon and grilled eggplant as well as exotic herbs to balance its sharpness.

      The secret to this deeply satisfying wine is the ripeness of its fruit. Zinfandel wines taste of berries and jams when the grapes grow in cool climates. In warmer areas, the notes deepen to dark berries and have a peppery hint along with a touch of cinnamon and vanilla. Sweet white zinfandel carries the feel of a full-bodied wine — luxurious and filling — owing to its high acidic nature. Its oily texture and big, bold body combine with its moderate alcohol content to create an enjoyable drink for beginners as well as seasoned wine aficionados. While white zins have a low to moderate ABV, the red variants have higher alcohol content.

      Zinfandel characteristics

      Zinfandel wine grapes are pink instead of white and create a pink wine. The small grapes turn spicier when grown at higher elevations. They're prone to uneven ripening and are left to ripen for a long duration. They become sweet, making the red variant more potent. In the sweet rosé, the sweetness carries a note of the burnt woody taste of sweet tobacco. Wine critics and aficionados appreciate the smoothness with which this pink-hued white wine blends with red wines such as cabernet sauvignon or merlot. When brewed in oak casks, the wine boasts the essence of mocha, cloves and cinnamon. It's a popular wine — so much so that the third Wednesday in November is National Zinfandel Day.
