Infusion Tea Wine

Infusion Tea Wine

Monday, September 17, 2012

Experience this fresh, 100% Hawaiian take on a familiar pairing… tea and honey!

Infusion is a bright, crisp wine that blends the best of the Island. During fermentation, Volcano Winery winemakers infuse the tank of South Kona macadamia nut honey wine with black tea from their estate in the Volcano-area rainforest to create a vibrant taste sensation.

Honey of the front end, tea on the finish. With a residual sugar content normally in the “sweet” range (6%), Infusion actually tastes semi-dry to semi-sweet thanks to the tannins in the black tea. This unique honey wine is slightly caffeinated: the half-sized bottle contains about as much caffeine as a cup of coffee.

Enjoy well-chilled as an aperitif or with company on a Sunday afternoon. For a twist on the hot toddy, serve warm with a squeeze of lemon.

The sweet delights of the Hawaiian Islands can be found in our own award-winning Macadamia Nut Honey Wine. This wine is a lighter twist on sweetness, made from luxurious honey taken from the blossoms of our island’s macadamia nut trees, and transformed into an after dinner treat that is sure to drench the senses in the sweetness of honey.

It offers a sweet honey taste with a subtle nutty finish. This unique creation can be served well-chilled with your favorite dessert, or slightly warmed for those cooler evenings.

“This elderberry honey wine shows significant complexity and is more like grape wine than our other varieties. It has been referred to as “instant port” by numerous tasters. Our winemaker enjoys Elderberry Honeywine by itself or with a splash of blackberry grappa or brandy. We have found that our Elderberry Honeywine stays fruity for 1 -2 years, and matures well for 3-6 years.” Serve chilled. Certified Kosher OU.

“This dry, light mead is made simply by fermenting honey and has very little residual sugar. Less sweet than many other meads, it goes well with white fish and shellfish. Tasters often comment, ‘This is very interesting. I can smell and taste the honey, but it’s not sweet.’ Made from honey, without any grains.” Serve chilled. Certified Kosher (OU).

“Like cherry pie, this is our sweetest variety. Try it chilled before or after dinner, or with creamy (non-blue) cheeses and crackers. Try simmering it with pear slices or mix it into whipped cream icing. This wine tastes fruity for the first 6 months to 1 year (longer if kept cool) and is exquisite when aged 3-4 years.” Certified Kosher (OU).

Blackberry Honeywine

“Great blackberry wine with a kiss of honey. Try it chilled before or after dinner, with dark chocolate, cheesecake, or as a complement to a sunny beach. Our Summer favorite: put ice and strawberries in the blender, cover it with Blackberry Honeywine, blend, and serve. This berry wine should retain its fruity flavor for 6 months to a year, or longer if kept cool. We have enjoyed bottles of 3- and 4-year-old blackberry honey wine — it matures into wine that is less fruity and more port-like.” Certified Kosher (OU).

“Oh, Thebes, nurse of Semele, crown your hair with ivy! Grow green with bryony ! Redden with berries! O city, with boughs of oak and fir, come dance the dance of god! Fringe your skins of dappled fawn with tufts of twisted wool! Handle with holy care the violent wand of god! And let the dance begin! He is Bromius who runs to the mountain! To the mountain! Where throng of women waits, driven from shuttle and loom, possessed by Dionysos!” — Euripides
