Roundhill White Zinfandel
A light – 9.5% – rose wine with more colour than the ‘blush’ style white Zin.
Zinfandel grapes from select Californian vineyards are gently pressed to obtain the wines pale pink hue and light skin tannin. Cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks preserves the vibrant aromas and crisp fruit flavours.
Beautiful rose pink color, fruit-forward with just enough sweetness.
Delicate aromas of fresh, ripe strawberries, zesty lime and watermelon. Juicy flavors of strawberry, watermelon and lime. Fresh tasting with a soft mouthfeel and a lively, clean finish.
Refreshing and delicious when served chilled as an aperitif. Pair with buffalo wings, sweet & sour pork dishes or spicy Pad-Thai.
