Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The “Madeira style” process, allowed the natural sugars in the wine to slowly caramelize in the heat, bringing out intense nutty, dark and deeply tropical notes. ON THE NOSE: Stone fruit, jam, pecan and toasted hazelnut ON THE PALATE: Pecan, roasted nut, fig, apricot, lemon, and honey
Vineyard Notes
One of the fun wines to make, this is a late harvest Viognier from Farmhouse Vineyards, Meadow, TX. We chose a 1 acre plot of Viognier just for this wine, allowing the grapes to hang on the vine until they are super concentrated - nearly 6 weeks later than if we were making the regular Viognier.
Food Pairing Notes
Think rich desserts such as cheese cake, lava cake or hard aged cheeses with dried fruits.
Other Notes
Enjoy now or age forever. This wine will age beautifully over time.
