Grownup fruit punch
At only 9% alcohol, this blend of apples and red grapes is all the rage right now. All the rage with some California natural winemakers, that is. There is a growing movement to use the produce that is native, or at the very least, currently planted, in the state. As the years are getting progressively warmer and drier, the landscape is most hospitable to older and more-established varieties of fruit. In this case, winemaker Jason Charles was harvesting grapes next to an apple orchard in Mendocino, CA and decided to experiment with blending dry apple wine (or cider) with grape wine. The result is a delightfully friendly, curiously smooth, refreshing and very tasty wine (aka chilled red, cider, or rosé); something that honestly doesn’t have a category, but seriously needs a home – with us!
Type Apples, Carignan grapes
