With its buttery and savory notes, it is a wine like no other! It could be served at any dinner party or restaurant. yet guests will get a big kick out of it if they discover its special ingredient durian! 

The white wine created by students from the National University of Singapore contains no grapes. Instead, it is made entirely from the "King of Fruits", in what its makers claim is a world first.

But those who are not really fans of durians need not worry. The wine "tastes nothing like durian", remarked final-year PhD student Christine Lee, who created the concoction along with undergraduate Fransisca Taniasuri. The duo hope the wine will appeal to adventurous wine drinkers, whether or not they love the durian!
