From the Zinfandel (80%) and Petite Sirah (20%) grape varieties, the full-bodied, round Beyer Ranch Zinfandel is vinified by Wente Vineyards from the American wine-growing region of California.
In the glass, this wine shimmers in a deep ruby red with purple highlights. The nose enjoys a spicy-fruity bouquet with aromas of wild berries (especially raspberry and blackberry), juicy cherries - elegantly accompanied by freshly ground pepper and some oak wort. The aromas of the nose are also reflected on the palate and are perfectly supported by a full-bodied structure and round body. The tannins are wonderfully integrated and accompany you to the long, beautiful finale.
Vinification of Wente Beyer Ranch Zinfandel
After the two grape varieties have been harvested, the grapes are fermented separately in stainless steel tanks in the wine cellar of Wente Vineyards. We pump over the mash two to three times a day. After the fermentation process is complete, this American red wine is aged both in stainless steel tanks and in oak barrels.
Food recommendation for the Zinfandel Wente Beyer Ranch
Enjoy this dry red wine from the USA with appetizers - such as tapas or antipasti - lamb skewers fresh in the grill, or with roasts in dark sauce.
