2015 Ratafia

This decadent wine is crafted from from juice from our later press fractions. We fortified the juice with grape spirits and transferred it to oak barrels for a 5-year rest. We followed soléra principles of aging, making small additions to the wine from later vintages to keep the barrels full.

Almonds, hazelnuts, cherry compote, and cocoa tantalize the nose. Aromas of preserved orange peel carry through to the palate and are joined by a harmony of rich caramel, quince paste, marzipan, cloves, and clementines. The creamy, decadent finish lingers on the palate.

Ratafia is an ancestral method of preserving grape juice. Our inspiration for this wine is the Ratafia de Champagne, which is crafted from the juice from later press runs once the juice for champagne has been extracted; this juice is subsequently fortified and aged.
