| Nv New Age Rose Wine 750ml|
A purple red colour with very seductive and attractive violet shades. The wild raspberry aroma invades the glass. In the mouth, sweet memories of sugar flakes, red fruits and violet flowers invite us to stay trapped in its magic.
The most exciting summer wines to come from Argentina are making quite a splash in the U.S. this year. New Age White (an effervescent blend of citrus-y Sauvignon Blanc and fruity Malvasia) and New Age Rose (also effervescent, with Argentina's signature Malbec red grape and Merlot) add a distinctive Argentine touch when combined with various fruit juices for a South American Mimosa, Cosmopolitan or even New Age Sangria.
Yet, the most common way to enjoy New Age is on the rocks with a slice of lime or lemon. This highly refreshing drink is called "Tincho" after the cocktail's creator. In Argentina, New Age is usually ordered by the bottle for a group of friends to enjoy. The well-chilled New Age White or Red is brought to the table in an ice bucket, along with traditional "rocks" glasses filled with ice and sliced limes or lemons. The friends share the bottle and camaraderie together at the table. Common practice at traditional "happy hour watering holes" and night clubs in Argentina, this tradition is starting to catch on here in the United States.
New Age comes from Bodega Valentin Bianchi, one of Argentina's oldest wineries, founded in 1928 by Italian immigrant Valentin Bianchi. It is one of the oldest family-owned wineries in Argentina, helmed today by Valentin's grandson, Valentin Eduardo Bianchi.
This third-generation winery owner was given the nickname "Tincho" as a boy, a term of affection that, loosely translated, means "young Valentin" (as his grandfather was "older Valentin"). It is "Tincho" that fist added the lime to the New Age White. "Tincho", the drink, quickly became one of the most popular, refreshing cocktails served in the restaurants, bars and nightclubs in trend-setting Buenos Aires.
