Food Pairings for Cypress Vineyards White Zinfandel
The windswept Cypress tree, the unmistakable signature plan of Californias coastal terrain, owes its gnarled appearance to the maritime airs persistent movement either inland or seaward. The oceans influence on the Central Coast winegrowing region is significant, keeping coastal and inland valleys refreshing cool, while preserving the grapes natural acidity and flavor. Temperature is critical for development of fragrance, flavor and acidity too little heat, and grapes rarely ripen, too much and the acidity, delicate and endearing qualities of the grape are lost. For Cypress Vineyards White Zinfandel, the daily cooling air from the Pacific moves directly from Monterey Bay and down the Monterey appellations of the Salinas Valley, creating a White Zinfandel with delicate raspberry, strawberry and watermelon aromas and flavors matched with a crisp acidity. Harvesting and pressing in the vineyard at night ensures the preservation of these bright fruit flavors.TECHNICAL DATAOrigin: 85.2% Zinfandel, 7% Gewurztraminer, 5.2% Syrah and 2.6% ValdiguiTotal Acidity: 0.66 g/100mlpH: 3.23Alcohol: 11.5% alc by vol.Residual Sugar: 1.93 g/100mlWINEMAKERS COMMENTSCypress White Zinfandel has an attractive rosy-pink color with enticing aromas of strawberry preserves, watermelon, cotton candy and raspberry.
