very tasty!!! If you want to try something different for a change, this is great chilled and would be awesome with Turkey dinner :)

Similar to cranberry juice in taste. The alcohol content, at 10%, is just right. A nice treat with thanksgiving dinner, or mixed with ginger ale for a tasty summer drink.

What? A fruit wine? You bet. What goes better with turkey than cranberries? Winemaker Matt French has to crank up the residual sugar in these to combat the tart acidity of the cranberries, but the result is a pleasing, food-friendly wine. A bouquet of floral notes on the candied cranberry nose leads to a burst of cranberry in the mouth with crisp acidity that both refreshes and cleanses the palate of the sweetness. (Muskoka Lakes also makes a White Cranberry wine that is equally food-friendly.) Pare with turkey, chicken, or ham.

2010 vintage. Candied cranberry aromas and flavours, crisp, chalky tannins lead to a very dry finish. Needs a couple of years in the bottle for tannins to settle. Tasted Aug/2012.
