The Mixed Berry wine from Shady Orchard and Winery is a blend of blueberries, saskatoons, raspberries and strawberries – all grown right in High Prairie. Upon uncorking I didn’t notice it as overly aromatic, the fragrance didn’t quite ‘fill the room’ like some of their other wines but that’s not to say it doesn’t have a beautiful scent, it just wasn’t as pungent; and there is no doubt that it is very flavorful. I’m not even sure which berry flavour came through the most – they all blend together so beautifully. It is a very smooth and very sweet wine. There is zero dryness and zero bitterness. This sweet berry wine would be a perfect spritzer or summer sangria or just enjoy it straight up; perfect for lake side sipping this summer.
