Day 52-Tropical Paradise by Emerine Estates for $19.25
This wine was another wine that we purchased on our trip to Ohio. We bought the Black Cab wine at this winery also previously blogged upon. This wine is very different. It is 24% apple, 24% pineapple, 5% grapefruit and 47% grape wine. This wine tastes like pure pineapple and is very tart, and dry. This wine had to be needed a large glass of water with it due the thirsty factor that ensued after drinking it. Like the name, it tastes like a wine that you would sip outside at the pool. I am surprised by the tart aftertaste because the wine is pineapple forward and the wine balances out that sweetness by the dry, tart finish. I would say if this wine could be made into a frozen drink then you would have the perfect summer slushie. I like this wine but, I think my limit is going to be about 2 glasses because the acidity is going to cause some heartburn since I am drinking it without food. I think this wine would be an apertif wine or a dessert wine, basically what you would pair pineapple with, may be some polynesian dishes or hawaiian fare. I like the wine it is just a small dose at a time.
