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. - Winery

Winemaker's Notes:

To create a light, refreshing wine with fresh fruit flavors that are balanced with a full body, Beringer winemakers chose to use the French method known as blanc de noirs, where the juice remains in contact with the skins for approximately three hours, leaving just a hint of pink color. To focus the bright red berry and citrus flavors, winemakers then chilled the grape must for a short time before proceeding with a temperature-controlled fermentation. To finish the wine, he blended in approximately 20% barrel-fermented Chardonnay to round out the mouth feel, and add depth with complementary apple, pear and vanilla aromas and flavors.
