Westport Rivers Dessert Wine Sun & Spirit, A Seasonal Variety

Sun & Spirit is a wonderful new 375ml dessert wine from Westport Rivers. 

Tasting Notes: For three years we aged our brandy in freshly toasted French barrels. The brandy soaks up the spice and caramelized sugars from the oak. We then add that to freshly pressed chardonnay grape juice, careful to mitigate the sweetness of the juice. This means 19.2% abv that not only keeps the sip highly drinkable but adds a lean, svelte dimension to the fruit. Careful to age for two more years, the results are marvelously complex. With the fulsome depth of a Vin Santo to a Ratafia but the crisp acidity care of our New England climate, freshly-crushed grapes and biscuits meet honey, raison, and vanilla chai spice. Always have with charcuterie, cheeses, fruits, and Marcona almonds. Enlivens a crème brulee or dolce de leche. Rumor has it that Alan pours it over vanilla ice cream, however he won’t admit it!
