New Age is a label imported from Argentina via the Valentin Bianchi winery. It is made of 90% Torrontes and 10% Sauvignon Blanc grapes. It is the epitome of summer wine. Balanced acids, not too sweet, and slightly effervescent, It is divine when served with a wedge of lime in the glass. The alcohol content is on the low side, allowing you to enjoy glass after glass without overindulging. As delicious as this white is, I do NOT recommend the blush or red versions.
Another offering of Ste. Chapelle via Precept Wine Co. Usually chocolate wines are overwhelmingly sweet and cloying. Not so with this one. Notes of toasted almond, toffee, and chocolate twine sensuously with the wine liquor itself. No syrupy sweetness here, just smooth delicious desert.
This is Sassi, an imported Pinot Grigio from Italy. Like most European wines, this has a dry profile (but not overly dry) with delightful wet river stone undertones that makes the finish surprisingly complex for an inexpensive white. I was very pleased with this find at our local wine shop.
