Cougar Winery Releases Two New Wines
United States, California, Temecula, September 10th 2010. Cougar Vineyard and Winery, located in Temecula Wine Country, released this month their dessert wine the 2009 Malvasia Bianca and a hearty super tuscan style wine the 2008 Sangio +. The Malvasia Bianca is the sweetest white wine that Cougar has ever produced. Cougar plans on producing this wine from estate grapes starting next year. The Sangiovese is blended with Cabernet Sauvignon grapes both grown in the award winning estate vineyards located in Fallbrook California. The blend goes by the fanciful name of “Sangio +”. Cougar only produces approximately 4500 cases of wine a year, so the addition of these wines to the tasting menu is important to their guests.
When asked why the Malvasia Bianca was made as a sweet dessert wine, owner and winemaker Rick Buffington replied “My wine club kept asking to produce a sweeter wine. The response to the wine has been tremendous so we’re glad we listened to our members”. The Malvasia Bianca was sold as futures and is estimated to be sold out in a few months. The residual sugar in the wine is close to 6%. The previous sweet wine made by Cougar, with the exception of their Port, was around 2% residual sugar.
Rick had this to say about the new Sangio +. “The vineyard in Fallbrook is in its’ ninth leaf and consistently produces high quality grapes. We are very excited about the 2008 Sangio + being another award winner”.
