A Taste of the Exotic

Item Picture
  • Publish Date: Feb 17, 2010

Snacking on a few Cabernet or Chardonnay grapes is a fun thing to do if you’re walking through a vineyard at the right time of year. Tasting fruit off the vine is a great way to understand the winemaking process and will enhance your appreciation of each bottle you drink.

Chances are, most of us have had a taste of fresh pineapple or sampled the seedy sweetness of a passion fruit, which will make Radee Wines easy to appreciate.

Made in Thailand, not from grapes, but pineapple, mangostine, and passionfruit, Radee’s exotic wines tantalize the tongue with their sweetness in an extremely refreshing way. Avoiding any overly sweet, syrupy or medicinal characteristics, Radee’s Thai wines are balanced by pleasant acidity.

Given that each Radee wine is made from a tropical fruit, it’s no surprise that each boasts strong tropical aromas. Our favorite of the three was the passionfruit wine, which was the most balanced and seductively sweet. It also made the best cocktail when we tried it with a splash of Prosecco.

So when you’re fending off the winter doldrums, or considering how to liven up the cocktails at your next Sunday brunch, we encourage you to consider blending your bubbly beverages with a dash of something more exotic—Radee’s Thai wines.
