Tasting Notes

This decadent dessert wine has a deep golden straw in color in the glass, with enticing flavors of dried peaches, apricots and marmalade, and savory, nutty aromas of almonds, marzipan and honey. Made from Chenin Blanc grapes that are dried outside in the shade until they are half raisined, concentrating flavours, acidity and sugar into a super intense, but balanced treat. Fermentation is in old French barrels with indigenous yeasts and can last up to a year. The wine is bottled unfiltered and unfined.
