Brilliant reddish orange color. Fruity, candied aromas of bubblegum, coconut mango sticky rice, apple cinnamon compote, and anisette biscotti with a round, crisp, sweet medium body and an engaging, relaxed apricot, chamomile, iced tea, and roobois finish with soft tannins and no oak flavor. A sweet and complex way to end a meal.

Fruit Wine

Serve in a Copita
Fruit wines, produced in many countries, are fermented alcoholic beverages made from fruit or even herbs and flowers. There are dozens of types of fruit wines, ranging from apple, strawberry and peach to elderberry, rhubarb and dandelion.

May of these are quite sweet, although some, such as pineapple, are rather dry. As many of these fruits are very high in acidity and would produce a wine that would be too acidic for most tastes, water is often added during the production process to create a less tart sensation. Alcoholic contents range from 10% to 16% or so.

Fruit wines are made for immediate pleasure, generally enjoyed on their own at a picnic or backyard barbecue.
