Valentin Bianchi White Blend New Age 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

A vivacious and sensual wine, exhibiting aromas of fresh flowers and fruit, crisp, yet soft in the finish. The fruit is hand picked followed by crushing, cooling of crushed grapes, and pressing. Fermentation begins by inoculating with selected yeasts. Halfway through the fermentation process, the wine is centrifuged (spun) to halt fermentation, creating a slightly sweet, semi-sparkling wine. Serving Hints: This wine should be served well-chilled as an aperitif or dessert. Also tastes great with spicy Thai, Indian, Chinese or Japanese cuisine.

Yes, this is a sweet non-vintage sparkler with just 9% alcohol and grapes of uncertain provenance. Yes, the label recommends drinking it with ice and a lime wedge. But this wine is unusual in interesting ways, too. The nose mixes guava and kerosene, and sweet flavors of pineapple and dried pear are offset by a note of laundry detergent and a surprisingly dry and chewy finish. The aftertaste is a bit odd, too, with a mix of green apple and bitterness. This is a popular wine in Argentina thanks to its price, marketing, and soda-like drinkability. It’s also an interesting excursion off the beaten path, and a good alternative to cheap prosecco. (AV 85, http://argovino.com/?p=1053)

It is sparkling and very fruity. Great with a squeeze of lime on hot summer days.

I consistantly pick up bottles of the white and blush, they are perfect for a quick, chilled glass anytime. It's pretty hot this time of the year, and I find a glass of this after a long hot drive home from work is perfect. Its a very 'fun' wine that I always keep on hand.

Refreshing summer drink over ice with lime and cranberry! My new favorite!

"A light yellow/green colored wine

New Age Rose has a purple-red color, with very seductive and attractive violet hues. The wild raspberry aroma invades the glass while, in the mouth, sweet memories of sugar flakes, red fruits and violet flowers predominate through to the fresh, effervescent finish.

A light yellow/green colored wine, with fruity and floral aromas of great intensity. Balanced acidity leads to soft, semi-sweet and slightly effervescent flavors and mouth feel. It is an extremely refreshing, vivacious and sensual wine.
