While most of us only have one question when it comes to wine; ‘red or white?’, it is time to broaden our horizons to the array of fruit wines on offer. Fruit wine is simple enough, and is becoming a new trend in wine making. The rule – to use anything but grapes. Winemakers across the globe are moving from the vineyard to bottle anything and everything from strawberries to elderberries, with favourable and flavourful results.
Fruit wines are made by fermenting the juice of other fruits, and will often have additional flavours from other fruits, flowers and herbs. Once popular among home winemakers, Fruit Wines are now hitting the market in a big way, with Cherry being one of the most popular flavours on offer.
