A traditionally made, fortified wine that is aged in oak barrels.
Small quantities of perfectly ripe fruit were gently crushed and inoculated with our favorite yeast strain. Fermentation lasted just a few days, and was arrested with considerable sugar remaining by the addition of neutral grape spirit. The wine was then aged in older oak to attain its characteristic softness and complexity.
This sweet fortified wine bursts with blackberry, blueberry and plum aromas. Its mouthfeel is all about velvet and fire. 100% Merlot.
