From the Beringer White Zinfandel bottle: “Since 1876, Beringer has crafted award-winning wines in Napa Valley and this White Zinfandel is no exception. Crisp and refreshing, bursting with the aromas and flavors of fresh fruit, America’s favorite White Zinfandel is well suited on its own or as the perfect compliment to a meal.”
Beringer White Zinfandel Review
This wine retails for about $7.99.
This wine is light rose in color, almost approaching pink. In the glass, this wine is not heavy by any means. No legs here, just a sheeting action on the sides of the glass that quickly dissipates. Interestingly, after the wine was consumed, you could see a layer of residue on the bottom of the glass.
The aroma of the wine was light and bright. It was also very lofty, though more so noticed upon the initial pour. Less so after a moment or two. The nose was of fresh fruits and perhaps a hint of candy apple.
The wine’s taste was very sweet, as expected. Given the light appearance of the wine, you may be suprised that the taste is a bit “darker” then might be expected. This is primarily due to the sweetness of the wine.
The finish of the Beringer White Zinfandel was long and noticable all over the mouth. A very slight bitter taste was noticed at the long end of the finish.
Overall, this wine makes for a good summer sipper. It definitely needs to be serve chilled and you’ll find that recommendation on the bottle. The relatively lower alcohol content also makes it a better sipper. Pair this with a cookout on the grill and beach volleyball! A good starter wine for a younger legal aged wine consumer.
