What would make Assassin's Creed even better? Official wine, duh! Especially with the latest entry taking us back to Ancient Greece, the latest collection of fine wine is the perfect way to pay Dionysus tribute while traversing the world of philosophy and cultural intrigue.
According to a recent press release, "Winemaker Lot18 has teamed up with Ubisoft to produce a limited-edition collection of wine based on the mega popular and world-renowned Assassin's Creed franchise. These bottles make great gifts for fans of the worldwide hit game and film, as well as anyone who enjoys a quality bottle of wine. Each bottle will include a specially designed label, making it the perfect beverage anytime."
The six variations can be seen in the image above, with a full breakdown below:
According to the wine connoisseurs, "Just as Aveline is the ultimate social chameleon, this French white blend is infinitely versatile, deftly tackling various food pairings and displaying different characteristics each time. The wine can be buoyant or rich, depending on the match — let it liberate your senses and challenge all that you know."
If you're looking for a complex white, this one is it!
Oh, Arno. The Assassin front and center of Assassin's Creed Unity. "Often misunderstood, Arno struggles with finding his way in the world, despite his pure intentions. Similarly, Zweigelt remains an obscure grape for many, but one sip will show you why it's so popular in Austria. Vibrant flavors of plum, morello cherry and violet abound, revealing a romantic core that ultimately shines through."
For those seeking a richer flavor, "Displaying impressive finesse and flavors of red currant and savory herbs, this red is the embodiment of Altaïr. The Cabernet Franc grape tends to mature quickly, just as Altaïr became the youngest to obtain the rank of Master Assassin. Take a leap of faith with this dynamic wine and be reformed in your tastes forever."
"Only a variety as ancient as Tempranillo, thought to have given rise to Spanish wine as we know it today, could represent the character of Bayek, whose tenets for the Hidden Ones organization are the basis for the Assassin's Creed. Here's a ripe, full-bodied and remarkable example that's as special as an Apple of Eden."
Another selection for a lover of a fine red, "Sometimes the most intriguing creations are born from forging the old and the new. Such is the case with this New World take on Cabernet Sauvignon and namesake for the complicated character of Ratonhnhake:ton, aka Connor. Extremely complex, yet pleasing and balanced, this is a wine that has something for everyone."
And finally Ezio, the poster child that many look to for the Assassin's Creed franchise as a whole, despite the game's roots: "Sourced from Ezio's birthplace of Tuscany, this red is charming and charismatic, like the Renaissance hero himself, displaying flavors of cherry and red plum on the palate. It's an enchanting Super Tuscan that will make you believe in the enlightened perfection that the Assassins know humans are capable of achieving."
