  • Winemaking The grapes remain on the vines late into the season to dry naturally and concentrate their fruit sugars. Pressing is followed by slow fermentation at low temperatures (59˚F) for several months until 14-15% alcohol content is reached. A small portion of the wine is aged for one year in barriques of French oak and then blended with the balance in stainless steel before bottling and release.
  • Tasting Notes Color: Intense, rich-golden. Bouquet: Elegant, harmonious with hints of apricot, honeysuckle, raisins, and honey. Taste: Unctuous, with dried-apricot, raisin, and honey flavors. Subtly sweet. Finishes with nuances of almond and honey.
