The Queen took a flagon of sweet plum wine from a passing servant girl and filled Sansa’s cup. “Drink,” she commanded coldly. “Perhaps it will give you courage to deal with truth for a change.” (II: 621)
Sweet Plum Wine
Your first sip of this wine will make you feel like you’ve been punched in the face by a plum, in a good way. The first sensation is of biting through the skin of a plum, a little coarse, then a burst of flavor. There then follows a quick whirl of tart-sweet-tart, followed by a lingering taste of pure dark plum. It feels as though it should be a heavy wine, but is surprisingly light, and would be perfect for summer picnics.
For our plum wine, we selected a local variety from Nashoba Vineyards. Highly recommended!
