Cypress Vineyards White Zinfandel 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

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. It is deliciously refreshing in its style of berry fruit flavors, crisp acidity, hint of spritz and touch of residual sugar. Enjoy with grilled salmon or chicken or as an ideal picnic wine.

Cypress Bend Vineyards officially opened its doors in late June of 2005. After four years of cultivating thirty acres of muscadine variety grapes (better known as Scuppernong), Dan and Tina Smith have decided to share their passion for these grapes with the public. Growing the muscadine cultivars -- Carlos, Noble, Magnolia, Doreen and Triumph -- Cypress Bend Vineyards is taking the sweet taste of the muscadine grape to new levels in their eleven muscadine table wines and one after dinner wine. Cypress Bend's wide variety of wine includes a Chardonnay and a Syrah. The Lumber River, situated in the coastal plain of North Carolina, helps nurture the land, making it the perfect grape growing soil. Come join us on the patio of our winery, unwind and take a stroll through the vines or sip a glass of wine while enjoying some tasty treats offered in our retail shop.We invite you to taste all of our wine selections and enjoy the atmosphere of Cypress Bend Vineyards produced by the fruits of generations of labor. Growing the muscadine cultivars -- Carlos, Noble, Magnolia, Doreen and Triumph -- Cypress Bend Vineyards is taking the sweet taste of the muscadine grape to new levels in their eleven muscadine table wines and one after dinner wine. Cypress Bend's wide variety of wine also includes a Chardonnay and a Syrah. The quality of a Muscadine wine is directly dependent on the quality on the stock. Cypress Bend Vineyards selected from among 300 cultivars, settling finally on the five which would yield the right combinations of productivity and flavor. Carlos is a North Carolina native, vigorous and highly productive, identifiable by its clusters of bronze-colored fruit. Contrast these with the deep red grapes of Noble, another prolific producer. Doreen produces a bright green grape with a distinctive, slightly elongated shape. Magnolia is another vigorous vine yielding large quantities of bronze-colored berries. And finally, Triumph is a Georgia native with a slight reddish blush on its skin which has adapted quite well to North Carolina. Read less
