It may be hard to believe, but each and every state in the U.S. produces wine – even Hawaii. I’ve always wanted to try the wine of Hawaii, but figured I would probably never make it to a Hawaiian winery in person (but I can still dream). While shopping at a specialty store I came across this Maui Blanc Pineapple Wine produced at the Maui Wine winery, which is made from 100% fresh pineapples. I was skeptical at first because I don’t care much for sweeter wines myself, but the bottle proclaimed that it was done in an off-dry style so I thought I would give it a try.
I brought it home and kept it in my wine refrigerator for three months. I kept meaning to open it but instead I found myself reaching past it for a Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio on warm days. I finally decided to give it a try last night and I was pretty impressed. It really is off-dry, starts off as a crisp but smooth white wine, but then finishes with a fresh pineapple taste. This is one every wine lover should try…if only to say they did. (But it’s really good!!)
