The wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Partway through fermentation, the process is stopped by adding high-alcohol grain spirits, bringing the alcohol up to 19-20% and leaving behind residual sugar.On the nose you will pick up sweet, ripe dark fruit. The palate is full and mouth coating with more dark fruit, and hints of raisins and figs. On the lengthy finish, you get the warmth of the alcohol balanced with a natural residual sweetness.
This wine can be enjoyed on its own or with a variety of strong cheeses such as blue or stilton. If you enjoy something sweeter - dark chocolate, or a dessert with raisins or figs will certainly pair well.
