A close cousin of Port, it has less alcohol (16% vol) and residual sugar (100 gr per litre).
The grapes for this wine are picked late. Neutral spirit is added before completion of the alcoholic fermentation. The wine ages for a year in used 500 litre oak vats before bottling.
It presents a very fruity and complex nose of blackberry, cassis and hints of violet, spices and cocoa. Smooth and velvety on the palate, with a long and fresh finish.
This wine pairs perfectly with foie gras, blue cheeses and chocolate desserts, but also goes down a treat as an aperitif.
