Thoughts for Food:
This is a versatile wine. This cherry wine has great acidity to pair with poultry or pork dishes and can show its adaptability with ethnic cuisine like Thai or Szechwan.

This wine is also wonderful as a mulled wine. Try this recipe.

A nice blend of sweet and tart cherry flavors complemented by a subtle spicy finish. This is a wine with many uses. Most people who enjoy off-dry style fruit wines drink it as an aperitif or as an alternative to grape-based semi-dry wines.
