Description

A light-bodied semi-sweet wine with pear and pineapple aromas. Clean and well-balanced, with zesty acidity on entry and lingering perfumey character.

Estate Apples and Honey.

Winemaking

Apples are crushed and pressed similar to our other apple wines. The must is then capitalized with honey. It ferments dry and is aged in stainless steel tanks until bottled with 2-3% residual reducing sugar.
