“Like the trade winds of Hawaii, Volcano Blush brings tranquility and refreshment to your table. White grapes and exotic jaboticaba berries from the Big Island are blended together to offer hints of cherries and cranberries bathed in a pink hue, then kissed with sweetness and coupled with just enough spice to surprise your palette. Serve well-chilled and let the taste of Hawaii sweep over your taste buds like a gentle leeward breeze.”
