A "new" re-release of this sweet fruit wine for Allegro! Years ago, the brothers made a strawberry wine—only 500 bottles—and to this day I still hear people comment about it. I knew we had to eventually make one ourselves. When we made our first one a couple years ago, the wine was a bit hit in the tasting room. This year's should sell out just as quickly.
In true Allegro tradition, it had to be a blend: the strawberries are complemented by Fredonia grapes from Erie. Most fruit wines have issues related to the underlying chemistry of the fruit itself. Blending the fruit wine with a grape wine seems to ameliorate those short-comings while at the same time making the wine more complex and “wine-like.” In Twang, you'll find familiar strawberry flavors grounded in smooth grape fruitiness.
