The Oddbins Take

Zinfandel, it's the all-American grape whose bright and bold red fruit flavours bring the Californian sun to Blighty, right? Erm, no. In the 1970s, a USA expert confirmed that the grape was genetically identical to Italy's Primitivo grape and, in 1998, the University of California launched an enquiry, now known as the 'Zinquest', that further matched Zinfandel/Primitivo's DNA profile to a grape grown to the north of the Croatian town of Split, known locally as Crljenak Kaštelanski.


And then they found it again, south of Split, under the local name of Pribidrag. Very local indeed, in fact, as the entire growth was in an old lady's back garden! Investigations continue to this day, but in the meantime just sit back and relax in the warmth of this hearty, juicy and spice-infused down-home American red wine.
