It is amazing to find a Zinfandel from the premium region of Lodi in California for under £10 and this is a real treat. Not only that but it is a silver award winner at the prestigious Sommelier World Wine Awards 2018 so it isn’t just us that love it.
Lodi is prime winemaking territory, situated in between San Francisco Bay and the Sierra Nevada Mountains, it is warm and sunny with cool sea breezes. This perfect climate allows winemakers to consistently craft quality wines while the diversity of the soils give added complexity.
Zinfandel is California’s flagship grape variety creating fruit forward and robust red wines. This vibrant example is packed with aromas of vanilla, cracked black pepper and dark damson fruit. On the palate this wine is round and fleshy, beautifully balanced and packed full with bright red fruit flavours and a lick of vanilla.
Really good with a classic bbq foods of butchers sausages, chicken wings and a juicy burger.
