|Drink Wine and Giggle Gals rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:|
The Drink Wine and Giggle Gals have almost worked their way through the entire by-the-glass portion of the wine list at their favourite lunch locale. All that remain are a few wines such as Robert Mondavi's White Zinfandel that we would never normally choose. When it arrived at our table, we were surprised to see that our white zinfandel had somehow turned pink. What happened? Apparently white zinfandel is pink is because it is made with red zinfandel grapes with a short maceration (the Drink Wine and Giggle Gals feel empowered using the proper word for skin contact). Perhaps pink is not a high credibility colour so Robert Mondavi tries to pass their pink zinfandel off as white. Or maybe it's because Sutter Home who first produced the wine in the 1970s decreed that its pink wine was white and everybody played along. Anyhoo, this pink/white zinfandel, although somewhat syrupy like the wine we imagine Barbie would drink, grew on us. Not bad for the cheapest wine on the menu.
