Wine Review: This light goldenrod colored dessert wine is sweet nectar! It opens with an inviting orange marmalade bouquet with hints of rum cake and raisin. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, viscous and rich. The flavor profile is a very tasty orange and apricot jam blend with hints of mild golden raisin and brown sugar. The finish is pleasantly sweet and it flavors are nicely prolonged. I would pair this tasty dessert wine with coconut macaroon cookies. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Intense aromatics of mango, apricot and honey beautifully integrated with flavors of peach and candied brown sugar. This wine is all held together by crisp bold acidity. Food Pairings: Blue veined cheese with dried fruit or fresh peaches or pears; roasted chicken with grilled peaches; fresh papaya and lime salsa with grilled white fish; traditional peach pie.

Organic status: not organic

Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
