Winemaker Notes
Our port-style wine originated in 2011 with the fortification of a barrel of partially fermented merlot and Syrah juice. Each vintage we add a barrel or two to the program, choosing the varietal we find most exciting that year. This “solera method” blend is now comprised of Merlot, Syrah, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon from subsequent vintages. This translates to great fun for the winemakers and warm velvet yumminess for the drinker. Fortified with spirit distilled from Hillside wines by Maple Leaf distillers. The sweetness level is 6.9, or 69 g/L residual sugar.
Food Pairing Notes
The balanced sweetness of this wine makes a perfect match for cheeses, chocolate, biscotti or dried fruits.
