Helena Ranch White Zinfandel 2014

ID No: 443158
Country:United States
Region:California
Grape Type:Zinfandel
Winery:Oak Ridge Winery
Product Description

Juicy watermelon and floral aromas and flavors are accented with citrus and red fruit. A crisp, bright and delicious wine to enjoy on a hot summer day.

Located among the verdant mountain terrain of the Sierra Nevada lies a vineyard so vast its leafy tendrils stretch far into the distant horizon. The several generations of cattle ranchers who live there are its devoted caretakers. This honest, salt-of-the-earth family are passionate wine makers and seasoned grape growers, using their expertise to cultivate the fine fruit that makes its way into every bottle of wine they lovingly produce. This strong bond between man and nature is the very essence of Helena Ranch.

Zinfadel grapes are harvested at peak of ripeness to maximize aromas, flavors and sugar levels in the berries. The juice is pressed off the skins immediatly to achieve a beautiful pink color. Cool fermentation is stopped prior to going to dryness in order to preserve fruit and melon aromas and natural sugars from the grapes.

The unique flavor and sweetness profile of this wine enables it to pair well with most Asian food, even hard to pair spicy Asian like Szechwan Chicken. Also good to have with other hard to pair spicy cuisines such as Cajun/Creole.
