Fruit wines are made from a specific fruit base, other than grapes of course. This can include single fruit flavours or blends of multiple fruits together. Some fruit wines may be produced strictly with fruit, while others may be blended with grapes. They are traditionally popular in winemaking regions with cooler climates, making it a great fit for Canadian winemakers. Enjoy fruit wines on their own or pair them with sharp cheeses, light salads, or desserts.
Flavours of Fruit Wines
Three of the most popular fruit wine flavour blends are tropical, citrus, and berry. Other flavours include: cherry, plum, apple, peach, pear, strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, blackberry, rose, apricot and banana. Fruit wine is produced in three main styles: sparkling, fortified, and ice.
Fruit Wine in Canada
There are several advantages for winemakers who produce fruit wine. The wine is matured for a much shorter time period than wine made from grapes. Harvesting periods can be longer for different fruits and there are opportunities for multiple harvesting periods. In many cases, the price of the fruit is lower than that of grapes. All of this allows winemakers to produce more wine more efficiently.
