A couple of new Star Trek-themed wines have been revealed by Wines That Rock and one of them allows fans to drink like a Klingon with Klingon Bloodwine.
The 2018 Klingon Bloodwine Cabernet Sauvignon is described as having “strong flavors that glisten a vibrant ruby color in the glass with aromas of dark chocolate and bold flavors.”
The Klingon Bloodwine comes in a collectible bottle that features a silkscreen design and hand-dipped wax finish that pays homage to the three pillars of Klingon Culture; honor, duty and tradition.
For our new Klingon Bloodwine, we utilized the same ancient methods as the great Klingon vintners, and the talents of 2020 Wine Enthusiast’s ‘40 Under 40 Tastemaker’ Andrew Nelson as winemaker. The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes used to create this traditional Klingon Bloodwine were cultivated to produce strong fruit that glistens a vibrant ruby color in the glass. Design elements, including a special silk screen process with a unique mesh texture provide an authentic look and feel. Each bottle is then hand-filled and expertly wax dipped. In addition, there are unique Klingon sayings on four different corks used in bottling – all celebrating the Klingon culture and language. Which one will you get? batlh yItlhutlh
There’s also the new United Federation of Planets Special Reserve Sauvignon Blanc. This wine is made from north coast California grapes, and is described as having “flavors of elegant tropical fruits and white peach burst forth with a refined acidity that balances the ripe citrus aromas.”
Enter the next generation of the United Federation of Planets wines, a Sauvignon Blanc, made from north coast California grapes. Each limited-edition Sauvignon Blanc bottle is individually numbered. Designed as a companion to the United Federation of Planets Old Vine Zinfandel, its futuristic round shape and unique label cut were inspired by the StarFleet Delta and are a nod to Star Trek: The Next Generation official issue uniforms. The bottles elegant design and premium wine quality were created as if they were to be served at official United Federation of Planets gatherings including diplomatic banquets, Federation Council meetings, and planetary assemblies.
Federation of Planets Special Reserve Sauvignon Blanc has flavors of elegant tropical fruits and white peach burst forth with a refined acidity that balances the ripe citrus aromas.
