Winemaker Notes

Deep red with blue tones. The nose shows raspberry compote, crushed bing cherries, and red currant. Rich and full with bright acidity and fresh fruit notes. Creamy caramel roundness emphasizes the spicy backnotes and the juicy fruit fi nishes with a touch of pepper.

Great with everyday foods. A beautiful partner to pizza – especially those with fresh tomato toppings. Zinfandel also pairs well with Indian cuisine – a touch of curry complements the spice and the juicy fruit helps tame the spice on the palate.

XYZin is a premium Zinfandel producer that explores the effects of vine age on the structure and style of Zinfandel wines. Each of our three wines is an expression of the time and place the vines were planted, and come from Zinfandel vines at least 10, 50 or 100 years of age at the time of harvest. We believe the age of a vine is as much a part of a wine’s makeup as climate, soil and clone selection, and each wine reflects the physical age of its vine, as well as the techniques and traditions of generations of farmers.

A picturesque Mediterranean nation with a rich wine culture dating back to ancient times, Greece has so much more to offer than just retsina. Between the mainland and the country’s many islands, a wealth of wine styles exist, made mostly from Greece’s plentiful indigenous varieties. Still suffering for centuries after Ottoman rule, the modern wine industry did not truly begin here until the late 20th century, after a mass influx of newly trained winemakers and investments in winemaking technology. The climate—generally hot Mediterranean—can vary a bit with latitude and elevation, and is often moderated by cool maritime breezes. Drought can be an issue during the long, dry summers, often necessitating irrigation.

Over 300 indigenous grapes have been identified throughout Greece, and though not all of them are suitable for wine production, future decades will likely see a significant revival of many of these native varieties. Assyrtiko, the crisp, saline variety of the island of Santorini, is one of the most important and popular white varieties, alongside Roditis, Robola, Moschofilero, and Malagousia. Muscat is also widely grown for both sweet and dry wines. Prominent red varieties include soft and fruity Agiorghitiko, native to Nemea; Macedonia’s savory, tannic Xinomavro; and Mavrodaphne, used commonly to produce a Port-like fortified wine in the Peloponnese.

Other Red Blends

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
