Twin Pomegranates Wine Review



Twin Pomegranates is a small wine company located in Fresno, California. They are quite unique in their wine format--they use locally grown super-fruit Wonderful Pomegranates as the base of their wine, therefore crafting wine that contains rare, exotic and unique flavors and qualities.
They currently produce only 3 varieties of wine:
  • 100% Pomegranate Table Wine--Approx 13.4% Alcohol, Tart, Crisp, Bold, Dry taste with the distinct nose of Fresh Pomegranate. 
  • Pomegranate & White Wine (Chardonnay) Blend-- Approx 12.9% Alcohol, Clean, Light, Chardonnay with a subtle Pomegranate finish with the nose of apricot and green apple.
  • 100% Pomegranate Sparkling Wine--Approx 13.3% Alcohol, Honey Lavender, Crisp, Slightly Sweet taste with the nose of Pomegranate, Perfumey & Bark
I was able to sample Twin Pomegranates' Table Wine and their Sparkling Wine. First, if you have ever tasted a pomegranate or 100% pure pomegranate juice than you know not to expect the sweetness that you might from other fruit wines. To me pomegranates have a very unique and distinct flavor that I could completely taste in both of these wines. If you are a Champagne or drier Sparkling Wine fan--I think you will really enjoy the unique flavors of their 100% Pomegranate Sparkling Wine, if you prefer your Champagne in a "Champagne Cocktail" (I admit I fall into this category) this wine will add a unique and quite enjoyable twist to your traditional varieties, like a Mimosa or Bellini--the pomegranate flavors and fragrances sort of adds another dimension.  Of the two, I preferred their 100% Pomegranate Table Wine, I could definitely notice the pomegranate flavors and fragrances--it had the tartness & dryness that pomegranate juice has. While I was drinking it, I was thinking that this would make an awesome sangria or wine spritzer for those who do not prefer dry wines, plus I bet this would add some really unique flavors when used in cooking---I am think poultry, pork or mushrooms maybe. I just may have to experiment a bit!

Twin Pomegranates Wine carries the unique qualities and flavors of the Wonderful Pomegranates that they are made from. They can be found in some Whole Foods Markets and in a few stores primarily on the west coast (CA & NV) but they can also be ordered online. If you enjoy pomegranates and drier wines--these pomegranate wines would be a match made in heaven for you! Enjoy--preferably at least a bit chilled in my opinion! And please enjoy responsibly.
