Wine: Winemakers’ Selection White Zinfandel California 2014. (Sainsbury’s)
Alc Vol: 11%
HJ says: “Fruity, adaptable grape of California with blackberry-like and sometimes metallic flavour. Can be structured and gloriously lush, ageing for decades, but also makes’ blush’ pink, usually sweet, jammy.”
The label says: “Crushed strawberry and juicy watermelon flavours.”
Food: recommended with berry desserts. We shared a bottle with friends at the end of a supper party, over a home-made fruit salad.
Verdict: The pink version, but not too sweet and definitely not jammy. The fruitiness worked well with the dessert. Did the job.
