Vinification and Ageing
In years of great quality, the best grapes are selected and fermented for around 5 days. Fermentation is then interrupted by adding wine brandy, resulting in a number of blends which are then aged in oak casks until bottling.
Although it is able to retain its qualities for several years after bottling, this wine is intended for immediate consumption.
This is an excellent accompaniment to sweet deserts, and should be served lightly chilled.
