Today I got this email from Majestic:
As a Ravenswood buyer we know you’re fond of Zinfandel. So here’s a hot tip you shouldn’t miss. Not only is Definition Zinfandel consistently a better price – at £8.99 (Mix Six price) – but the quality of the juice is a big step up. It’s made by a three-time ‘U.S Wine Producer of the Year’
The Definition Zinfandel’s all about Lodi’s old-vine Zin’.
So, irritatingly (like the Parcel English Fizz) they go almost all the way to naming the (three-time ‘U.S Wine Producer of the Year’) producer, but don’t.
Well, TWS says Delicato have been named U.S Wine Producer of the Year an unprecedented three times at the International Wine and Spirits Competition and TWS own label 2016 Old Vine Zinfandel is made by Delicato and costs a pound less.
(The last time I bought Ravenswood Zin at Majestic was in November 2016 when it cost £7.99; its £11.99 now)
