DetailsTropical Bliss™ Apple Riesling is like biting into a juicy apple and being rewarded with a refreshing burst of floral Riesling aromas and flavours.
Sensational aromas of crisp, green apple and sweeping floral and white fruit from Riesling blend to a heady perfume of inviting scents. Pleasantly tart, with a crunchy apple juiciness, it finishes with the lushness and minerality of perfectly ripe Riesling grapes.
Ready to drink in only four weeks, it’s perfect lightly chilled with spicy dishes, or just for sipping by the pool or the beach.

4.8 / 5.015 ReviewsGreat Summer wineOn my third batch. can't keep it in the cellar.The apple adds a crispness to the Riesling and does not overpower it.August 15, 2016using this one for my wedding reception!This wine kit turned out great! I ended up fermenting a couple weeks longer than the recipe called for because my refractometer is giving misreadings and I thought it wasn't finished fermenting. I had suspected an issue so I checked it later with a hydrometer and all was completely fermented at about 6 weeks. It may have fermented a little slower than expected but I will never know for sure because of my faulty reading, however the Riesling tasted very good even at bottling time. I can't wait to try this one after some time aging, I suspect a quality wine based on my initial tastings. I will be making this one again for sure!December 19, 2016Purchased
1 year agoGreat Summer WineMuch to my surprise this wine is very well balanced on sweetness, not too sweet and not too dry. It seems to be everyone's favorite. The taste is light and flavorful, excellent choice for summertime patio drinking. My friends that have been lucky enough to get a sampling of this wine keep asking for more. This wine will be a summertime staple at our house. The only problem we have encountered is that we did not make enough to last the summer.July 9, 2017Purchased
1 year agoGood stuff!I am really enjoying this wine. I did modify it slightly, so keep that in mind. After reading some reviews for a similar kit, I added 2 cups of sugar and half of the flavor pack to primary. That resulted in an ABV of about 10%, with a very pleasant apple "bite" that really makes you want to take another drink. I expect that making it as advertised would result in a slightly fruitier, sweeter summertime drinker. Great job on the design of this one!July 14, 2018Purchased
6 months agoGreat summer poolside adult beverageThis is definitely a summer wine. Great for cookouts, sip by the pool. I'm on my 2 kit. I use about half of the flavor pack because I don't like my wine too sweet, and have had no complaints from my guests.July 18, 2018Purchased

10 months agoVery good even on bottling dayI have made 6 reds before this first try at a white. I was pleasantly surprised to find that on bottling day it was very tasty, crisp and refreshing. I added 5 pounds of plain sugar on day 1 to get an ABV of 13-14%. I am very impressed with the quality of this wine especially considering the price. All my friends raved over it. I am looking at buying a couple of the other tropicals. One thing I learned with this first white... be super careful racking leading up to bottling day or get a filter system. Sediment shows up bad in whites.July 21, 2017This was my first batch ??????????The only problem was it didn't last long. Family and friends loved it. I'm making another batch very soon.January 21, 2017Purchased
