Fruit wines comes of age. 23/01/2006. ABC News Online

The Australian fruit wine industry is coming of age, with production ramping up across the country.
The sixth annual fruit wine show in Hobart yesterday attracted a record number of entrants, with 183 varieties.
From liqueurs made from jostaberries to 'black devil port' made from tropical black sapote, the wines were an instant hit with the thousands of people who were up for a slurp and sniff.
Among them was North Londoner Jacqueline.
"I've tried blackberry, loganberry, nectarine, plum, all sorts," she said.
"I'm going through all the different fruits just to try them all out. I've enjoyed most of them, some of them a little dry for my taste. Only problem is if you try too many of them you end up slightly tanked."
