Just as layers of paint influence each other on a canvas to create a final painted picture, different fruits in fusion wines co-ferment to create new flavors and textures. When setting out to make a fusion wine, I often let my senses guide the process.
Riesling is an interesting grape by itself, but the addition of pomegranate takes it up a few levels. I’m always looking for new challenges and ways to do things. Fermenting pomegranate with Riesling grapes for our Pomegranate Riesling Fusion was one of those creative winemaking opportunities.
