ZinGre is our little play on the term 'vin gris', which is French for Rosé. Our Rosé is a blend of 50% Zinfandel and 50% Grenache. A traditional vin gris is made with minimal or no skin contact, yielding the least amount of net color possible. We follow that tradition, along with our own winemaking protocol that we’ve developed for white wines, using techniques and yeast that develop bright, fruit driven aromatics. Our goal is for the wine to be tropical and crisp, with that hallmark acidity our customers have come to expect from a Meeker wine. This vin gris delivers punchy strawberry lemonade notes with delightful brightness. On the palate, lemon peel, cran-apple and strawberry give way to crisp acidity and a clean, elegant finish.
