The second wine of the year... That does not sound like nearly enough! Meet Shamong White by Valenzano Winery in NJ. Shamong is actually a town in NJ. I have no clue why they picked this name. Shamong isn't famous for wine that I know of.
This is where I should mention this review is unsolicited and Valenzano Winery could care less what I think.
I like sweet wine. I do. I love the light flavor. However with that said Shamong White was odd. It didn't so much taste like white wine as it did fermented grape juice. Maybe it was the intent of the winery for the grape flavor to be prominent but I like layers of flavor in my wine. Don't get me wrong, I can't tell you that the wine has a floral finish or anything but I know grape when I taste it!
Shamong White's lack of complexity made me think it would be perfect for a wine cocktail. In a sangria or wine punch Shamong White would shine. It's light, sweet flavor would play perfectly in the back ground and let the other flavors shine.
I say try it for a cocktail party in a signature beverage you design yourself.
