Acclaimed erotic romance novel Fifty Shades of Grey has captured the attention of readers worldwide. Now, from E L James comes a new collection of wines inspired by her best-selling books. Featuring the tagline "You Are Mine," Fifty Shades of Grey Red Satin and White Silk wines (www.FiftyShadesWine.com) offer the perfect combination of naughty and nice, providing readers with an experience sure to stimulate their senses.
Personally blended by author E L James along with winemakers in California's premium North Coast appellation, Fifty Shades of Grey Wine will allow fans to further explore the world of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey and personally experience James' passion for wine, showcased throughout the novels. Infusing fine wine cues and storyline elements into this carefully crafted collection, Fifty Shades of Grey Wine blends perfectly James' knowledge of wine and romantic tastes.
"Wine plays an important role in Fifty Shades of Grey, adding to the sensuality that pervades a number of scenes," said E L James. "I've always had a penchant for good wine, so combining two of my passions to blend Red Satin and White Silk was a natural extension of the series. I hope my readers curl up with a glass as they enjoy the romance between Anastasia and Christian."
The Fifty Shades of Grey Red Satin is a decadent red blend of Petite Sirah and Syrah with flavors of black cherry, cocoa powder, creamy caramel and vanilla, leather and clove spice. Aged in a combination of new and neutral French oak barrels, this red blend is the perfect indulgence. Accompanying Red Satin is White Silk, a delicate yet rich white blend of Gewurztraminer and Sauvignon Blanc. White Silk's flavors include floral aromatics of lychee and honey, tempered by flavors of crisp grapefruit, mineral and lush pear with a faint hint of butterscotch. Fermented cool and aged in stainless steel tanks, this white blend offers a delicately playful experience.
Red Satin and White Silk are now available for purchase at www.FiftyShadesWine.com and will be available in the United States in October 2013 at Albertsons, Wine.com and other retailers nationally for $17.99. For more information on Fifty Shades of Grey Wine, please visit www.FiftyShadesWine.com.
