Hazlitt Spider Bite

I know for all the wine snobs out there the idea of apple wine is something abhorrent. But I have had several apple wines I have liked very much.

One of the best ones is the Spyder Bite. This is made from Spy and Spygold apples. The resulting wine is a semi-sweet deep yellow wine. It smells like you just bit into a fresh apple, and it tastes like it too, with some sweetness and nice acidity. It's great cold, and it's also great served warm with mulling spices.

This is a seasonal wine, so you have to buy it now, because it will not last the season.
