November 19th was National Zinfandel Day and what better excuse do you need to start drinking more of this brilliant wine? Full of ripe dark berry fruits and smooth tannins, this easy drinking wine is perfect for the season. Robust flavours yet balanced with elegance, Zinfandel is excellent with food and makes for a perfect pairing with some of winter’s heartier dishes.

It’s a well-travelled grape which is believed to originate in the Dalmatian Coast. From there, it spread to Italy where it is known as Primitivo and grown throughout the southern part of the continent. In southern Italy, Primitivo achieves perfect ripeness – the wines are juicy, with sour black cherry, raspberry, and blackberry flavours. Thanks to hours and hours of sunshine, these wines can reach fairly high alcohol levels but in the best examples, it can be hard to detect. In the USA, Zinfandel is less ripe than its Italian version but equally delicious.

This is an ideal wine for the Thanksgiving table or really for any roasted meat dishes or savoury meals with a hint of sweet. Although they are best enjoyed in their youth, a few examples are even capable of ageing for a few years. For those who love a glass of rosé, Zinfandel is also used to make fruity blush wines that are often slightly off-dry – perfect for curries, chillis, and other spicy eats. You’ll never be without a wine to drink with your Indian takeaway ever again!

If you enjoy sipping on generous wines with plenty of flavour, Zinfandel is definitely for you. From Croatia to Italy, America and beyond, this great grape makes wines that will leave you satisfied every time. Simply use Winepicker to discover where you can grab a glass of Zin near you!
