Naked Grape White Zinfandel Pinot Noir

Date July 8, 2010 | Chuck | USA & White Wine & White Zinfandel

Friend of the site Vesna has deemed this white zin to be the best of the best. Take her word over mine on this varietal. Although the tasting notes are by yours truly, because c'mon...they don't give websites to just anybody ;)
Overall this is a great summer sipper to be placed in the ice bucket among the beers, but only if there are ladies around so you can explain to passers by that it belongs to them.

Kittling Ridge White Zinfanel Vidal

Date August 18, 2008 | Chuck | Canada & White Wine & White Zinfandel

Although I don't keep white zin on hand, this white does make a pretty good summer sipper.  Yes, I was surprised...the varietal I usually call 'sugar wine' was sweet but not tooth-decay sweet or  syrupy.
I would choose this bottle over the Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi.  It's much more flavourful and expressive.
Tip: chill well

Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi White Zinfandel 2005

Date June 17, 2008 | Chuck | USA & White Wine & White Zinfandel

White Zin always gets the cold shoulder from critics even though it's one of the top selling varietals in North America. Why? because it's a rose, it's light and it's sweet. Those three reasons are also my guess as to why it appeals to so many wine buyers out there, they make it easy and fun to drink.
Although the composition is 84% Zinfandel, an interesting spectrum of grapes are used for flavouring and balance: 8% Muscat, 4% Barbera, 3% Syrah and 1% Grenache
Note: given an extra half star because it's not as syrupy as some other white zins
