Black Currant Wine

Bottle Volume: 375 ml.
Aroma & Flavor
In the spirit of the cordial, we blend the warmth of our custom-distilled apple brandy with the tantalizing and earthy depth of organic black currant for a sweet and sumptuous dessert wine. Bright apple brandy carries the earthy depth of the black currant. Sumptuous, thick, tart and full of rich, ripe flavor.
Pairings & Serving Suggestions
A few ounces in a cordial cup, at room temperature, is a rich delight. Lovely paired with dessert or as dessert itself. Add a splash to sparkling cider or wine for a Kir Royale variation. Drizzle on ice cream, use in baking or mix in a vinaigrette.
Lightly fermented Black Currant Wine captures the ripe intensity of the fruit. Fermentation is halted by the addition of apple brandy, custom-distilled for Finnriver by Admiralty. Back sweetened to taste. Silver Medal, 2014 Sunset International Wine Competition.
Brandy is distilled from cider made with organic Washington dessert apples, primarily high-acid varieties such as heirloom Granny Smith. Organic and/or regional black currants sourced.
