Broc Cellars White Zinfandel 2020
Broc Cellars White Zinfandel has a peachy orange colour that reminds you of exciting summer morning, when you wake up really early because you’re too excited for what’s waiting ahead. Upon popping the bottle, you’re being introduced to floral notes of rose and hibiscus, followed by notes of fresh berries and grapefruit. The palate is soft and full of bright acidity with notes of strawberry, raspberry and a refreshing, zesty finish. A delicious summer rosé!
The vineyard is steep and the top of the vineyard gets a lot of sun throughout the day. Vines grow on a soilbed that is iron-rich. 100% Zinfandel. The grapes are picked early so they don’t get too much sun exposure since the Zinfandel grape is very thin-skinned. In the cellar, after the Arrowhead grapes arrived, they foot-stomped the whole cluster and left the grapes to macerate for 4 hours. They were then pressed into the stainless tank where they fermented for 10 days and transferred to a 4400-litre stainless tank for 8 months. The Ricetti Vineyard’s Zinfandel was brought in and made as a light red wine, whole cluster. The small amount added to the Arrowhead base gives the wine its structure.
