Treasury Wine Estates uncorks line of perfect wines for young women

DBR Staff Writer Published 06 July 2011

Treasury Wine Estates, a Australian winemaking and distribution business in California, has introduced a new line of boutique wines, called Vin Parfait, for women who are in their 20s and 30s.

The Australian winemaker noted that Vin Parfait, which means 'Perfect Wine' in French, is designed keeping in mind the busy, fashionable young women.

The introductory launch features the 2009 Chardonnay and 2009 Red Wine from California. The 2009 Vin Parfait Chardonnay comes from select vineyard sites across California's coastal regions.

The inclusion of small amounts of Riesling gives characters of citrus and white peach, while Muscat adds a touch of spice and floral aromas.

This wine has flavors of lemon, apple and white Bartlett pear, with notes of vanilla. It also has a creamy texture as it undergoes a partial malolactic fermentation (75%).

The 2009 Vin Parfait Red Wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (44%), Zinfandel (26%), Syrah (13%), Petite Sirah (11%) and Merlot (6%).

The wine comes from select vineyard sites throughout California, mostly Lake County and Paso Robles. Cabernet Sauvignon gives the wine flavors of blackberries and boysenberries, enhanced by spicy notes from the Syrah and Zinfandel, along with a vanilla character from oak aging.

Both wines, which retail for $13.99, will hit retail shelves in July 2011.
