The Skinny Vine Thin Zinfandel 2011
The Skinny Vine California Thin Zin was carefully selected to exhibit the juicy berry characteristics that make this wine so beautifully aromatic and delicious. A slow fermentation allowed our winemaker to achieve the perfect level of sweetness, which is complemented by a mouthwatering acidity. The resulting wine is beautifully fruit-driven, clean and crisp for light and carefree moments. 089819543359
Not your traditional Chardonnay, this wine is light and crisp but not quite like a Pinot Grigio. Ok for the price nice for a warm or hot summer day. I gave it 2.5 only because it is not a chard or even an unoaked chard but its drinkable
Judging this one unfairly because I have a favourite already in this category, but surely deserves a respectable nod. Slightly tart, slightly dry, definitely zinfandel. Biggest issue I have is that it doesn't seem to have enough character to distinguish it from other Zins. If you're a Skinny Vine collector, surely keep this in the rack, but for me there is another.
