Mission Briefing

Codename:

Makes me wanna dance...

**Warning**: This is a very dangerous wine! At our recent tasting, Agent Red declared, “No matter how much I beg, don’t pour me any more.”

Staplehead winery achieved perfect balance in this sangria. They could have made it sweeter, but they found a delightful balance by crafting a refreshing, light-alcohol wine that’s lightweight on the palate, juicy and very easy to drink. It is a wine that is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face.

Serve very well-chilled, all on its own, or try adding fresh fruit and/or fresh berries. At our next company BBQ, we’ll even try this wine with some ice chips and a splash of soda.

Very versatile and very food-flexible, this fun, budget-friendly gets our very happy recommendation.

Important Note: This is a lightly sweet wine, not a sweet wine. The Chenin Blanc gives the wine perfect balance and just the right amount of brightness.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Light copper hues with shimmery edges that catch the light when you swirl the wine.

Smell:

Sweet and happy aromas jump out of the glass to greet you on the nose. Honeysuckle, kiwi, apricot, lime, ripe pear and orange blossom combine in perfect harmony.

Taste:

Delightful and fun on the palate, with flavors that are not too sweet. Flavors of peach, nectarine, orange blossom, red delicious apple, lychee and very subtle butterscotch.

Finish:

Sweet and refreshing, with each sip making you yearn for more.

Pairing:

The pairing for today’s wine goes right inside the glass! A couple of blackberries, peach slices or nectarines would be simply divine. Pour some Perrier into the glass and add an ice cube if you are feeling really adventurous.
