You may not see this style of wine very much, but it is a very good fruit wine you’ll want to add to your cellar. It is one of the more unique varieties you will find in Texas. As the official state cactus of Texas, any Texas wine maker using this fruit will certainly want to make sure this wine turns out great. It is a semi-sweet wine with a pleasant fruity tropical aroma. If not for the slightly mineral aftertaste, this could almost pass as a Riesling to the casual wine sipper. The wine will appeal to sweet wine sippers. Serve this one chilled with a meal or as an afternoon drink as you put your boot covered feet on the back porch rails. And don’t worry, spines are not included.
