This apple cranberry wine has a balanced structure with good acidity and just the right amount of sweetness to bring out the fruit flavours.
I am not sure when this one was bottled, but it seems to be showing a bit of age in the colour, being dark salmon with a touch of brown. It has a nice cranberry aroma with a bit of tobacco leaf and subtle notes of apple.
There are crisp cranberry flavours with soft apple accents and a crisp finish.
This wine is packaged in 750 ML bottle with 10.6% alcohol.
As with most fruit and other wines, I like to taste them at cellar temperature, so I can experience all of the flavours and aromas. If you choose to chill this one, it will be very refreshing and could be served over ice or blended as a cocktail.
Great for a picnic, served with chicken, turkey, creamy cheeses or dried fruit. Also good with a holiday turkey dinner, or sipped on its own
The bottle I tasted had the old Archibald Orchards label. As it is not vintage dated, it is possible that you might find slight differences in a more recent bottling.
