    PRODUCTION DETAILS:

     The grapes were allowed to hang until the last possible minute to get maximum ripeness and high natural sugars. The three varietals were hand picked over the course of a week and held cold soaking until they could be co-fermented. This small lot ferment was stopped with 130g/L of natural sugar using fortified spirits. The wine was then allowed to age for 3 years in neutral oak maintaining the fruit and concentrating the wine.
