Three local creators came together to make this beautiful fortified wine. Inspired by the French vin de liqueurs and mistelle de raisins, this is a blend of equal parts 2014 and 2010 Sauvignon Blanc that was fortified half way through fermentation and matured in old French oak until early 2020. Has approx 80+ g/L residual sugar & approx 18.5% ABV. Drink now, on its own or with ice and soda or your favourite white spirit or keep to watch the spirit and fruit transform into something even more complex & intriguing.
This fortified is one to reinvigorate interest in the style. It's sauvignon blanc fortified and matured in barrel, showing rich slippery texture, candied citrus and spicy-toasty characters. Delicious.
