The only tropical dessert wines made in the USA are produced in the Redland region. Schnebly Redland’s Winery Dolce Series offer tropical lychee, mango and carambola in a fantastic display of delicious South Florida flavor.
The tradition of concentrated sweet dessert wines after a fine meal is as old as vintner culture. Bottled at a slightly higher fortification of 16.5% alcohol by volume, each small sip brings bright, bold flavor to the palate.
The Mango Dolce wine ($35) faithfully delivers the exotic essence of this tropical fruit with a perfect balance of sweetness and smooth bodied mouth feel.
Aromas of the Lychee Dolce ($43) suggest flamboyant fragrances. On the palate, hints of coconut and vanilla compliment the faithful rendering of lychee essence with a long lingering finish.
In a testament to the art of the vintner, Denisse’s Boo-Boo Reserve ($35) was an error that turned into a classic expression of ice wine, offering a near-perfect balance of sweet and tart notes of ripe carambola. A small sip of this chilled wine opens on the palate to reveal rich bright notes of tropical fruit.
Together, this trio of Dolce Series dessert wines ($75) sold in 375ml bottles make an excellent presentation for an educated wine connoisseur or a gift for any gourmand or adventurous foodie who understands quality and value.
