From the bottle:
Argentina's most popular white wine is a refreshing blend of 10% Sauvignon Blanc and 90% Torrontes. The intense fruit and floral aromas lead to a soft, sensual wine. New Age should be enjoyed chilled by itself or as a "Tincho". The "Tincho", one of the most popular cocktails in Argentina, is created by pouring New Age over ice and garnishing with a lime wedge. Cheers!
Today's wine is a Reverse Wine Snob Certified Summertime Sipper™ if there ever was one!* (*Trademark pending indefinitely.) When the temperature really heats up I can't think of many wines that would be more refreshing than this bubbly little number from Valentin Bianchi, the winery you may recognize from: Elsa Bianchi Malbec and Torrontes - Value Defined.
The New Age White begins with a pleasant, peachy aroma that also features a little tropical fruit. Tasting the wine reveals sweet yet crisp flavors of peach, pear and mango and a really nice effervescence that cuts down the sweetness nicely. You'll also find good acidity in this very refreshing wine. And I love the low alcohol so you don't have to be too concerned if you're quaffing it down on a really hot day. As the label says you can even serve it over ice with a lime, called the Tincho in Argentina. While it's not very complex this is definite Bulk Buy material for the dog days of summer. There's good reason this is the top selling Argentine white wine in the U.S.!
