Adam’s Apple Dry Apple Table Wine 2008 – Forbidden Fruit Winery, 11% ABV, 750 ml., (Cawston, BC, Canada) (*local BC fruit wine*)
on the back label:
“Our Adam’s Apple white table wine is lovingly crafted from the perfect blend of 6 different apple varieties all grown in the pristine Similkameen Valley.
With thousands of apple varieties believed to have grown in the original ‘Garden of Eden,’ the varietal blend in Adam’s Apple casts pure summer apple aromas with citrus and apple butter undertones. This crystal clear wine offers a palate of crisp clean citrus, a long finish of tangerine and pineapple, and will be enjoyed with veggie dishes, salads, salmon and shellfish and exotic cheeses.”

Visual: (2008 vintage, cellared for 8.5 years). Cork intact & good condition. Pours crystal clear light yellow.
Nose: fruity apple juice with some extra minerality (lvl-6)-pungency
Attack: crisp, bright fruity apple impression
Mid-palate: (lvl-2-sweetness), tangy bright red apple juice, light apple wine alcoholic, firm acidity
Finish: residual tanginess, apple exhale
Summary: Super clean apple flavour up front with a lightly sweet and bright body. Not quite as sour or acidic as you might expect from an apple wine, this one is easy going and very sippable. Slightly thin at the finish.
