The first thing to say about White Zinfandel is that it’s not a white wine – it’s a rosé. Zinfandel is usually red, but if you don’t let the red grape skins hang around too long, you can get something a lot paler. Sometime in the 1970s, Sutter Home Wines of California also realised that if you stop it fermenting a bit earlier, you can get something a bit sweeter too.

Sutter Home are still making White Zinfandel, and now they’ve made one without the alcohol. The result is a pleasant rosé, a little sweet but not too much. The makers recommend it as a “picnic pourer” and we’d have to agree. It’s ideal for hot sunny days and barbecue evenings.

Like the Fre white and red, you can find this White Zinfandel in Asda.
