But, first of all, who is “Walter”? Why is that sweet red wine is named after him?
Sweet Walter Red Wine was inspired by the existence of Sir Walter Raleigh, an English-landed gentleman who had lived around 1554 until October 29, 1618.
He was well-known as a writer, a poet (with a lot of poems), a soldier, a politician, a courtier, a spy, and an explorer.
Since writing (or doing other relaxing past-times or hobbies) would also be more enjoyable with the sole company of a bottle of light red wine, perhaps his name was taken as the name of the wine today.
According to a review on Empire Wine (empirewine.com), Sweet Walter Red Wine is sweet red wine with tones of strawberry and red raspberry. It is rich and smooth, a delightful blend of Native American grape varieties.
You can enjoy it either during or after dinnertime, especially if the menu includes pizza and pasta while listening to a pianist playing soft jazz music.
This grape red wine is sweet, delicious, and best served after being chilled for a while. It even tastes much sweeter than most red wines, but is guaranteed not to make you feel (too) sick after tasting it, all because of its lightness.
What does it consist of? An 11% of its content is made of concord grapes. Originally, it started with a 10.5% alcohol in the wine, compared to most other wines that have up to 12.5% alcohol.
It is reasonably affordable too, only about $8 until $10 per bottle. The fun part would be when we twist off the cap.
Some people would probably prefer having it at the room temperature instead of chilled, where the wine flavor would taste much stronger than when it is cold.
Since many love this type of red wine, they can also have Sweet Walter Red Wine every month. It is produced by Bully Hill Wines in New York and California, United States of America.
