Winemaker's Notes:

Beringer's vineyard team selects grapes for the Premier Vineyard Selection White Zinfandel from vineyards throughout California's North Coast, where cool Pacific breezes temper warm summer days to produce fully ripened berries with natural balancing acidity. A large portion of the grapes are grown in Beringer's Lake County vineyards where long, warm days at elevations between 1,000-2,000 feet produce deeply-flavored Zinfandel. The remaining grapes come from Napa Valley and Sonoma County.

Beringer's winemakers highlight Zinfandel's characteristically bright, fruity characteristics to create a light, refreshing blush wine. Immediately following gentle destemming and crushing, the must (pulp, juice and skins) is quickly chilled to preserve its fresh strawberry, raspberry and orange peel aromas and flavors. Just as a slight rose hue develops, the juice is pressed off the skins and fermented at carefully controlled, cool temperatures. To impart a slightly creamy texture and round out the vibrant berry and citrus flavors with notes of pear, apple and nutmeg spice, Beringer's winemakers blend in approximately twenty-percent barrel-fermented Chardonnay.

"Our California Collection wines are carefully hand-crafted to deliver the outstanding quality and rich flavors that are hallmarks of the Beringer winemaking team.This collection offers a wonderful array of smooth and refreshing wines with a youthful exuberance that is appealing to anyone looking for an easy-drinking wine to pair well with a variety of foods."
- Ed Sbragia, Winemaster
