Island Mist Wine Workshop- $175.00

Island Mist wines are light and sweet with alcohol content around 6%.   Perfect for any party or get together

HAR001 PEACH APRICOT CHARDONNAY
Chardonnay quietly contributes a subtle dryness and perfectly balanced acidity, with hints of its own citrus and fruit flavors.

HAR002 EXOTIC FRUITS WHITE ZINFANDEL
A fantastic pairing of White Zinfandel with a host of luscious fruits including blackberry, strawberry, passion fruit and black currant.

HAR003 BLACK RASPBERRY MERLOT
The aroma and flavors of freshly-picked, ripe raspberries merge with the lush richness of berries and fruit that naturally burst from the Merlot grape.

HAR004 GREEN APPLE RIESLING
Crisp, crunchy green apple flavor with a pleasant initial tartness, followed by a delicious juicy finish.  A real thirst-quenching treat.

HAR005 WILDBERRY SHIRAZ
A special combination of wild field berries is blended with the delicious, big red Shiraz to create a wonderfully fruity treat.

HAR006 STRAWBERRY WHITE MERLOT
The medium pink White Merlot lays the groundwork and the natural strawberry flavor weaves in a pleasant sweetness for a wonderful and delicious sensation.

HAR007 BLACKBERRY CABERNET
The natural combination of slight tart acidity with the pleasant sweetness that makes blackberries so appealing is the perfect complement to the robust and lively Cabernet backing.

HAR010 KIWI PEAR SAUVIGNON BLANC
Crisply tart and delightfully fruity with a luscious combination of kiwi, pineapple and banana flavors which meld beautifully into rich pear aromas.

HAR011 BLUEBERRY PINOT NOIR
The tangy, sweet burst of blueberry combines with the light-medium body and cherry-spice flavors of the Pinot Noir to bring an intense, yet not over-powering, fruit flavor to your palate.

HAR012 WHITE CRANBERRY PINOT GRIS
A spectacular crystal white color which is the result of a special blend of white cranberry and Pinot Gris.  Somewhat less tart than regular cranberry juice due to an earlier harvest than traditional red cranberries, White Cranberry Pinot Gris bursts with sweetness.

HAR013 POMEGRANATE ZINFANDEL
The Pomegranate’s earthy, rich juice balances with Zinfandel’s slightly spicy, robust grapes creating a delicate slightly spicy sweetness that has a particular uniqueness on the first sip and leaves you wanting more.

HAR014 –  CRANBERRY MALBEC
Exquisitely tart and refreshing, cranberries are the perfect foil for the rich power of Malbec’s deep fruitiness.  Combining the mouthwatering juiciness of North American cranberry with the plum, blackcurrant and sweet cherry of Argentinean Malbec makes a Mist that’s both luscious and lush, and perfectly balanced for sweetness. 

HAR015 – STRAWBERRY LYCHEE TRAMINER
Sweet and tangy lychee fruit complements the similarly exotic Gewurztraminer, while ripe strawberries add an interesting twist to the experience.  Asian inspired dishes and Szechwan spiced foods will never be the same.

 

HAR016 –  RASPBERRY DRAGONFRUIT SHIRAZ
This blush wine has been given some fire of excitement with the addition of sweet dragonfruit then gently splashed with tangy cool raspberries. Light the grill and sear some spicy shrimp skewers, or prepare some Thai green curry cuisine for a night of fire and flare.

HAR017 – PINEAPPLE PEAR PINO GRIGIO
Leaps out of the glass with juicy sweet pears, succulent, ripe pineapple, and a bright and flowery fragrance.  Firm acidity from the Pinot Grigio gives it mouth watering juiciness and a refreshing finish. 

HAR018 – SANGRIA ZINFANDEL BLUSH
A sweet and easy-drinking summertime wine, is a medley of seasonal fruits that can now be enjoyed year round.  Your nose will be enlightened by scents of orange, lemon, and lime that will marry with cherries on your tongue to create a sensational sipper that balances sweet and citrus flavors.
