The Details

In a Nutshell

Plummy sweet fruit, figs, nuts, dried apricot, and exotic lively spice. The grape tannins carry this generosity through on a long and warm finish.

Tasting Notes

he aromatic nose is a gift of baker’s chocolate, fresh pipe tobacco, and Christmas pudding, with fresh violets lingering in the background together with an array of spices, from nutmeg and cinnamon, to cloves and ginger. This wine has been fortified with high quality brandy spirit during the natural fermentation process. This has captured the beautiful character of the fermenting grapes. The palate is packed with intense flavours of plummy sweet fruit, figs, nuts, dried apricot, and exotic lively spice. Natural acidity has been retained and provides a structure on which the generous fruit body of this wine can sit. Chewy grape tannins carry this generosity through on a long and warm finish.

Production Notes

Small batches of grapes are gently crushed and then transferred to five tonne headed down open fermenters. Foot treading is undertaken two thirds of the way through fermentation. The wine is then basket pressed and a small amount of fine, fortifying brandy spirit is added, ending fermentation and retaining the sweet fruit richness of the style. The Vintage Fortified does not spend any time in wood prior to bottling.
