Sunset Point Zinfandel Rose IGT Puglia

External Review by Great Wines Direct:

We searched high and low in California to find a fruit driven, off dry Rose to add to our portfolio and were amazed when Sunset Point was discovered. This wine was such a hit, that as of 2011, we decided to source the fruit from the Zinfandels home country of Italy, and in particular Puglia, where it is known as the Primitivo. Smooth, sweet red berry fruit ideal for spring evenings and lazy summer days on the patio. Excellent value for money and superb quality go to making sunset point zinfandel blush an absolute must this season. Grapes : 100% Zinfandel (Primitivo) Region : Manduria, Puglia, Italy Notes : The Zinfandel displays classic red berry and pink grapefruit aromas augmented by hints of black pepper and wild herbs. In the mouth, its delicate berry flavours have a refreshing citric edge and a light pepper spice tone. Serve : Moderately sweet and well-balanced, with a crisp finish, it’s a delightful accompaniment to a wide range of dishes, from picnic fare, grilled salmon and roast chicken to country ham and Asian stir-fry. ABV : 10.50%
