WINEMAKING NOTES – The liqueur is a special release. It is made as a non-vintage wine. It is a blend of multi-vintages, similar to a Solera system. Only in years where ripening conditions allow perfect balance of sugar, acid and flavour a batch is made and blended with previous vintages. The Zinfandel grapes are usually harvested at about 17 Baume and allowed to ferment until the sugar and flavour is balanced, fortifying spirit is added to arrest the ferment. After pressing the wine is racked to seasoned French Oak barrels for maturation. This wine is bottled on demand by hand.
