First Blush

First Blush is the sister wine to Harvest Time. It is a blend of Connecticut-grown apples, pears, and black currants. (Apples sourced from Beardsley Farm in Shelton, CT; pears sourced from Bishops Orchards in Guilford, CT; black currants sourced from Maple Lane Farms in Preston, CT.) This wine is a bit sweeter than Harvest Time and is slightly tart (and deeper in color) from the addition of black currants. Cold-fermented in stainless steel from 7-9 months, this is a great summer, sipping wine and pairs well with spicy foods and Caribbean-style food.

Food Pairings:

  • Spicy foods
  • Thai, Indian, or Mexican dishes
  • Caribbean-style food/Jamaican jerk spice-rubbed cuisine
  • Cheddar cheeses

If you like White Zinfandel or sweet blush wines, this is your wine!

(Hint: think "wine slushies", too!)
