Winemaker Notes
Less than 1 ton of grapes harvested at approx 35 Brix in early November 2015. Grapes were left on the vine to the point of starting to become raisins through dehydration on the vine. Pressed into 100% new French Oak to ferment and then age for almost 2 years. Fermentation stopped at approx 12% ABV, leaving approx 16% Residual Sugar. Wine was allowed to oxidize in barrel to provide rich, nutty, and sherry-like qualities. This is a very sweet wine intended to be served as a dessert wine. High sugar content is balanced out by a core of bright acidity – which cuts through the sugar and nutty qualities in the wine. Loads of candied fruit flavors such as dried apricots, baked peaches, caramel apples. Nutty and rich due to oxidation. Toasty notes from the new oak barrels show through on the finish. This is the perfect end to a holiday meal with loved ones.
