Region: Sonoma Valley + Mendocino
Fruit for this wine comes from two different vineyards: Arrowhead Mountain Vineyard has iron rich soil and is located just above the town of Sonoma. They farm using no chemicals, pesticides, herbicides or sulfur. Ricetti Vineyard, located in Mendocino County, is Certified Organic.
Chris Brockway has been working with the Zinfandel vines at Arrowhead Mountain Vineyard since 2004. The vineyard is steep and the top of the vineyard gets a lot of sun throughout the day but Broc picks the grapes early so they don't get too much sun exposure since the Zinfandel grape is very thin skinned. They decided to call it White Zinfandel at their first release because of its high acidity but softer palate.
A delicious, bright pink rose with notes of pepper, watermelon, and strawberry.
