New Age White Wine..What's the Skinny?

What is the #1 selling Argentine white wine? It's from a winery that has been family owned and operated for 3 generations, is sustainably farmed, estate grown and bottled and it is a great addition to any fruit based cocktail.

I'm talking about New Age White Wine. A blend of 90% Torrontes and 10% Sauvignon Blanc. New Age White Wine is a great aperitif or dessert. It also pairs well with spicy Thai, Indian, Chinese or Japanese cuisine.

So what is all the fuss about? I've never seen a wine so widely accepted as the perfect patio sipper. Most people describe it as crisp, fruity, floral, semi sweet, but I just say quaffable. It's very common to have this wine in a high ball glass poured over ice with a bit of lime. The lime cuts the sweetness and creates a very refreshing drink. When served this way the wine is called a Tincho and if you are looking for skinny drinks, this may be the wine for you. A Tincho made with 5 oz of New Age, and a twist of lime has just 121 calories. Other Skinny Drinks made with New Age are:

Tincho Grande 154 Calories
4 oz New Age White
1 oz Citrus Vodka
Twist of lime
