Alberta's Red - sold out
Who says only grape wine can be red? Spirit Hills' Alberta's Red is a dry vibrant ruby red black currant honey wine with smells of spice, dark red fruit and ancient tales of Greece and Rome. It is a medium bodied food wine, well structured with a strong backbone and good length. The light oaking brings out its smokey and peppery notes. It pairs particularly well with lam and game. Best served at room temperature.
Here is what Tara Petersen, I.S.G. Sommelier says about it:
The color is intense, medium to light with a good shimmer. Good blend of alcohol and juice. Crystal clear, shiny with a satiny finish.
On the nose:
Healthy, beautiful honey smell, floral notes, currants, cranberries and spicy.
On the tongue:
Very well balanced, medium to full body. Some peppery notes, floral, perfect acidity, dry, distinct honey flavor, black currants, cranberries. A fantastic food wine, very food friendly with good structure and back bone.
It pairs well with red meats, fowl or game.
WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY
Thank you for making such a lovely mead! I didn't know what to expect from Alberta's Wild Rose but it was a wonderful bottle of wine! The flavour, the colour, the pure ingredients, fantastic!!
Shelley Smith, customer
Shared our first bottle of Dande this past weekend, and it was perfect! Dry enough for my husband to enjoy, but the underlying sweetness of the honey was just right for me. Wonderful experience, sharing and savoring our lovely mead wine. Might have to make this a Friday night tradition!
Tara Petersen, accredited Sommelier of the International Sommelier Guild
At first I was a bit skeptical when asked to profile the meads, but what a wonderful surprise it was to find local wines of such quality. Both Dande and Alberta's Red are well-structured and balanced wines with perfect acidity and an outstanding length. They are very food friendly, but can also be enjoyed all by themselves. And even though they are both dry, you can smell and taste the honey, it's almost like you can taste the sunshine and the flowering fields. These are wines that we Albertans can be proud of.

Visiting Spirit Hills is like visiting a quality winery in Sonoma or the Napa Valley. The visit will transport you to a different world and the wine will entirely amaze you and inspire you.
