Understanding Rosé and Zinfandel Blush:

  • Zinfandel Blush is often considered a rosé, known for its distinctively sweet profile.
  • Rosé wines, including White Zinfandel, are made by juicing red grapes and briefly soaking the juice with skins, typically for 2-3 days, to achieve the pink color.
  • The process creates a rosé wine with unique characteristics, differing from simply blending red and white wines, which is generally not practiced in quality winemaking.

  • Sweetness: Moderately sweet, highlighting the Zinfandel's unique flavor.
  • Acidity: Perfectly balanced, adding a refreshing touch.

About This Wine

Popular Wines Made From Zinfandel Blush Varietal Grapes:

  • Crljenak Kaštelanski
  • Primitivo
  • Rose
  • White Zinfandel

Many people claim White Zinfandel is not rosé, but instead a blush wine; however, White Zinfandel is indeed a rosé wine, made in the rosé style, it just happens to be an incredibly sweet rosé.

Unlike white grapes that become white wine, and red grapes that become red wine, pink grapes don’t exist in nature; so, how do winemakers create a style of wine that always has such a beautiful pink color?

Winemakers create a rosé wine by juicing red grapes and then allowing the juice to soak with the skins for a very short period, usually only two to three days. As soon as the juice begins to take on the beautiful pink color the winemaker desires, the skins are removed and the juice is allowed to ferment, creating delicious rosé.

A common misconception is that rosé can also be made by mixing red wine with white wine, but in fact, this process is frowned upon by the wine community.

Taste: Big and intense with red fruit flavors of raspberry and cranberry and rich juicy flavors of blackberry and plum, accompanied by the spiciness of pepper, clove and cinnamon.

Tannin: Medium to high

Acidity: Medium to high

Age: Best enjoyed within a few years of release, but the highest quality wines age well.

Lacklustre and zero flavour

Very disappointing blush/rose wine kit, there is zero flavor and its weak. We have been making wine for 4 years and for us, this is the worst kit we have ever bought, it was so drab and tasteless we ended up throwing it all away.

Zinfandel Blush

Great kit and easy to follow instructions. It cleared nicely and sample at bottling was very good. Should be ready for the patio in a month or two.

Zinfandel Blush

I have this kit in the primary fermenter now and it is bubbling away. I have made this many times and it is one of the only wines my wife likes. Can't wait to drink some more of it. Always delicious and just sweet enough.
