Zin Heaven with its dramatic, theatrical and show-stopping presentation, offers a bright and vibrant rosé made from Italian Primitivo grapes, the natural home of Zinfandel. Evocative of a glamorous era, this Zinfandel Blush is every bit as fruity as its label.
Grown in the native homeland of Zinfandel, Puglia, where it is also known as Primitivo. The grapes were trained on the cordon system, with canopy management ensuring the grapes reach optimum maturity prior to harvesting. The soils in the vineyard are clay and limestone, which have a cooling effect on the vines and produce bold wines.
The grapes were destemmed, followed by fermentation, which took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at a low temperature, to retain the purity of fruit and fresh style. The wine was macerated on the skins for 18 hours extracting the fruity flavours.
Classic red berry and pink grapefruit aromas complemented by hints of black pepper and wild herbs. In the mouth its delicate berry flavours have a refreshing citric edge and light peppery spice.
