learning more about grape varietals, the process involved in winemaking,
the aromas and flavors that result from blending wines, and now, they want
to know what's next," said William Terlato, President and CEO of Terlato
Wines International. "We created Seven Daughters Winemaker's Blends to
provide wine drinkers with a way to experience the art of blending, in a
unique package that balances sophistication with fun."
Seven Daughters White Winemaker's Blend is composed of seven distinct
varietals including Riesling, Symphony, Chardonnay, Orange Muscat,
Gewurztraminer, Sauvignon Blanc and French Colombard. Sultry scents of
orange blossom, musk and melon hint at a palate with the fresh flavors of
lychee and tangerine. Full-bodied and alluring, the wine finishes with a
satisfying spicy note.
Complete with seven different grapes, Seven Daughters Red Winemaker's
Blend is a sophisticated melange of Syrah, Merlot, Zinfandel, Carignane,
Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. The bouquet displays
blackberry and pepper, supported by subtle notes of lavender and vanilla.
After an exuberant palate of red fruit, including dried cherries, the wine
finishes with a touch of spice.
Both blends take cues from today's hottest culinary trends which
feature healthy, fresh and more vibrantly spiced food. Seven Daughters
Winemaker's Blends pair well with a variety of foods and are perfect for
casual entertaining or a night in with friends. The blends deliciously
complement a wide range of cuisines including grilled meats, seafood, Latin
cuisine, sushi and Asian fusion.
As consumers have grown increasingly adventurous and interested as to
how food is grown and prepared, their curiosity also extends to wine. To
provide greater clarity to today's actively aware consumers, the
percentages of each grape used in Seven Daughters Winemaker's Blends are
clearly listed on the labels.
