Day 4-Sweet William-August Hill Winery around $15.00
You may ask why this is my second review of an August Hill wine and the answer is simple, I am in their sweet wine club which gives me 2 bottles of their sweet wines every other month. And I really like their wines. Sweet William is a very sweet wine, august hill describes the wine as a white table wine , however I do not find this wine goes very well with food. The wine is a pure gold color and tastes thicker than your average wine. If you don't like sweet wines, this wine is unappealing, If you like sweet wines then this is a good choice for wine, however I found after my third glass, if you never go this far don't worry that it gets a little heavy. It is a blend of various grapes and has a very honeyed taste with aromas and flavors of peach and a lot of pineapple. This wien was drank while cheered on Arizona over Philadelphia in the NFC championship game, if your have no idea what I am talking about , you are obviosly not following football and don't worry about, the Bears are not playing, I like this wine, however, it is very sweet, August Hill states that it is their most popular sweet wine, generally 1 or 2 glasses is enough, it is not the type of wine your could drink all night. Well, on to the AFC Championship game! Go Steelers!
