Did you know?

The Mexican culture has a traditional drink called Tepache, which is fermented from the rinds of pineapple and honey.

  • About the Fruit The ‘quins’ variety of pineapple is procured from the southern region of the Indian subcontinent, Kerala, to craft this off-dry wine.
  • About the Wine A forerunner amongst the bouquet of wines vented at Rhythm Winery, is the Rhythm Pineapple Wine. It is lovely golden in color, which is developed over the period of time. The best quality grapes are used as a base for the wine, which allows the fruit flavours to get expressed prominently.

    Alchohol: 12 - 13 % v/V
    Acidity: 0.85 to 0.9 %
    Semi-sweet
  • Food Pairing Cheeses such as brie, Gouda and goat’s cheese, and desserts like cupcakes, donuts and shortbreads work well with this wine. Seafood also works well with its tropical flavours.
  • Serving Notes This wine is at its best when served chilled at temperatures between 10-12° C. This wine has an intense aroma of pineapple, so decanting for 5 to 10 minutes of opening is recommended.
  • Tasting Notes The fresh taste of ‘Queen’ Pineapple brings an inherent fruitiness to this wine. Redolent with tropical flavors it has lovely lingering aftertaste.
  • Wine Master's Notes During the initial period, it retains its fruitiness, but has great potential of developing complex flavors after a year of bottling.
