Our award-winning sparkling feijoa wine comes in three different styles. Each one has that distinct unmissable feijoa bouquet evoking late summer memories of sitting under a feijoa tree enjoying this fabulous fruit.
Dry - Crisp and refreshing, clean on the palate.
Not usually a fan of 'dry' wines because of the acid aftertaste reacting badly with my tummy, this was a really pleasant surprise. A slight hint of dryness, but without the sharp acid aftertaste, this was a lovely wine to have a glass with a BBQ steak dinner, and also a nice one to sip in the evening while sitting in bed watching a DVD before bed.
I also used this in cooking, in place of my more usual red wine, in a Spaghetti Bolognese. Though it changed the flavour to a slightly sweeter savoury dish, it added a nice fruity dimension to the sauce and kept it a lighter red, giving the dish a more vibrant look, which combined to somehow make it feel less of a 'heavy' dish. This went down a real treat with the whole family, such that even fussy Mr4 happily polished off his portion and asked for "... more, pweeze?"
A glass of this with a meal left my head feeling utterly clear, which was great, and more importantly the lack of sulphites meant there was no foggy head or queasy feeling the next morning - typical results for me and wine of almost any variety. I found the definite feijoa flavour and aroma to be a wonderful change to the usual feijoa wines I have tried, where the fragrance is there but the flavour falls short of the mark. For a feijoa fan, this wine is second to none, in my books.
Overall, an excellent offering this year, and I sincerely hope every year's vintage turns out as well as, or better than this one! My first encounter with Lothlorien wines, it was a welcoming of a new friend to my wine rack!
