St James Strawberry Wine NV

Member Review by NekotoNikku:

The wine has a clear, rusty red coloration and a watery appearance. Strong sweetness and strawberry scent on the nose, reminds me of strawberry jam. The scent continues through to the taste, an overload of strawberry flavor throughout, though fortunately less sweet in the mouth than on the nose.Like the label says, drink this very cold (35 to 40) - I tried it at normal temperature (around 50), and it had a fairly harsh alcohol taste. - Nikku
