Light garnet color. Fruity, spicy aromas and flavors of cranberry sauce and orange marmalade with a supple, bright, fruity sweet medium body and a smooth, captivating, medium-length finish manifesting notes of watermelon candy and peach skin with fruit, crunchy tannins and no oak flavor. A nice crunchy fruit wine with pure flavor and nice balance.

Fruit Wine

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.
