Wine Recommendation—Tassel Ridge Iowa Edelweiss
Iowa Edelweiss is a semi-sweet white wine with the scent of ripe pineapple followed by hints of mandarin orange, pear, and pineapple on the palate. Made entirely from Edelweiss grapes grown in our Iowa vineyards, it pairs well with spicy Asian foods, meats seasoned with Caribbean-jerk spices, and salads with pineapple, pear, apple, or papaya. Serve chilled.
