Wine: Leelanau Ltd. Pear Wine

Yes, wine made from pears.  This is the Great Lakes, beetch, settled by French freaks, and you can bet that the fruit hasn’t been harvested up here that we haven’t made into a wine.

Anyway: pear wine.  Sweet, yes, but not syrupy; it doesn’t taste like the liquid in a tin of canned pears, it tastes like an actual beverage.  I had it with chicken that was grilled in a marinade of pears and rum, and it was astonishing how the wine brought out the flavours of the marinade, accentuating the chicken perfectly.  It must be said, though, that this wine is undoubtedly more suited to desserts, although obviously it’s pretty good in the fou-fou marinade department.  Your mileage may vary.  Give it a try; I bet it rules with dark chocolate.
