Firecracker White Wine Blend(4 out of 5)

Standard

Image Oh boy, this was a nice surprise! You may or may not remember my post skewering the red blend(the maple syrup wine). After much discussion, Dylan got a bottle of the white so I could try it. I was prepared to not be friends with this wine, but oh, the surprise was on me! 

I have spoken about the blog feature coming “Candy & Wine-Why Not?”. I could use this as an opening salvo into that blog featurette. 

This wine tastes like liquid Starburst. The flavors of mango and pineapple are magical here. The wine isn’t real crisp, but it’s smooth and settles well. It has a nice smell to it also, kind of like you overdosed on Spree and this is what resulted. I drank several glasses and it went down real smooth and quickly. To the point where I stopped and told Dylan to cork that sucker up. I probably would have gone on drinking the whole damn bottle, and that isn’t good! 

I would highly recommend this for lighter fare- like my infamous Jimmy John’s slim Unwich. Or a light pasta dish with broiled chicken and lemon, this would be a good match. The bottle mentions with lamb. I guess if you put mint jelly on the lamb, and drank this, I can see that might be a good call as well. 

Overall, incredibly good fruity flavor. Not a long-lasting effect wine, but a good tasting wine. No sourness, no noticeable acidity, and it’s not real crisp, so it just kind of exists. If that makes sense. It’s a pretty mellow wine and not real bubbly, like the Kunde was, and we know I like bubbly wine, but the taste is what shines through here! I’ve never had a white that had such good fruit flavors shining through, and this one definitely does.

About generationgbooks

I read a ridiculous amount of books in a ridiculously quick amount of time. I read everything- fiction, history, sports, political science, fantasy, young adults, kids, romance- everything. I have worked in books almost half of my life now, and I never get bored with them. I need an outlet for books, where I can reach many people who may or may not give a fig about my opinions. I'm kind of known for rambling about books, so I figure it's about time I get off my lazy ass and take it to the blogosphere, where I have had the great luck of meeting many wonderful people inflicted with this book-disease. Personal stuff? Not much. I work too much, I'm single so I have more time to deal with this and less to deal with BS. I'm a die-hard Duranie and 80's fan. I am way too entertained with social media and astrology(for those of you who give a fig, I'm a Capricorn, or the sexier description- a seagoat.) for mine and the world's- own good. Only insanity can result from me blogging. That said, here goes!
