Middle of the Road
So, if the chicken crossed the road, why did the turtle stay in the middle?
He could not decide whether he enjoyed dry wine or sweet wine of course!
Middle of the Road is a semi-sweet red wine blend made from the Frontenac grape and blended with Merlot. This versatile grape can be made into a variety of wine styles, including rosé, red, and port (Little Red Pecker). It is a cold-hardy grape that is a relatively new grape in the world of wines, just released in 1996.
Maize Valley’s Middle of the Road has a deep garnet color that complements its distinctive cherry aroma and inviting palate of blackberry, black currant, and plum.
