Our current wine and cider line-up…

IMG_3454

 

Lots of people ask what wines and ciders we currently have available at the tasting room…Our current ‘line-up’ includes:

Apple Cider = Refreshing apple taste with a crisp and dry finish

Cranberry Apple Cider = A hint of ‘tartness’ intially then finishing crisp and dry – a great summer drink

Blackberry Table Wine = Full blackberry on the nose and in the taste, slight tartness with an explosion of blackberry flavour on the finish, a true berry wine taste

Blueberry Table Wine = For those not sure about fruit wine as it has a berry flavour to start but finishes with a more traditonal  ‘light red wine’ taste.

Sparkling Black & Blue (our newest addition) = A combination of our blackberry and blueberry wines with bubbles added just for fun! It’s light, fruity with a suprisingly dry finish…a lovely summer ‘sipper’ that is flying off the shelves already!

Mead (Honey Wine) = A earthy, ligt honey mead with a delicate feel but a true honey tatse. We consider this a ‘dessert’ wine but it is so versitile that it can be made into many different types of drinks ( you really need to come to the tasting room to try some and so we can explain how to ‘mix it up’ with this ancestor of all drinks!)

New wine now available in the Tasting Room..

Introducing our latest wine = sparkling Black & Blue…a combination of our blueberry and blackberry table wines with bubbles added just for fun! Its fruity, fresh with a suprisingly dry finish. If you would like to try or buy this delicious new product come on out to the winery tasting room (open daily between 12 noon-5pm)  and we would be happy to pour you a sample!

Never tried a mead before? Well now is your chance – earthy and sweet – serve it chilled with some ice (or make a mojito by adding lemonade and mint leaves or a ‘ginger zing’ by adding gingerale).

Our Blueberry wine is great to have on the patio with or without extra blueberries added!and our blackberry table wine is bursting with blackberry goodness (and flavour).

Want a fun drink to serve to your family/friends? – Then use either fruit wine as a base for  a ‘killer’ Sangria =  Just add some orange juice, cointreau or triple sec and then a whole bunch of sliced fruit then leave it in your fridge overnight for the fruit to soak up some of the flavour, then when you are ready to enjoy just add ice (oreven  soda and ice if you like a ‘lighter’ drink) either way you have it it’s delicious!

Both these drinks are delicious and fun…take a break from the grape and enjoy a fruit or honey wine instead!
