The reputation for Lodi as being one of the best areas of California for producing Zinfandel is increasing rapidly. The sandy soils have poor water retention properties resulting in low yields but great concentration in the grapes. This wine, from the 100-year-old Kettleman Road Vineyard is a superb example of Lodi ‘Zin’. Matured for 18 months in French oak, the wine has great power but also complexity and good ageing potential.
Ravenswood Old Vine Zinfandel, Lodi County,
Surrounded by some of Italy’s most famous wine regions, the town of Alba sits in the centre of the Barbera d’Alba region. The Barbera grapes undergo a moderately long fermentation and the wine is aged in large oak barrels. A dry and full-bodied palate, the wine shows cherry, currant and spice. Vegan Friendly
