Apellation: Wisconsin Ledge
Residual sugar: Sweet
Made from the Frontenac grape, which was 100% grown in our vineyards, this wine offers layers of cherry and chocolate flavors that will linger on your palate. These expressions are the natural evolution of flavors that result from the aging process.
This wine has the higher alcoholic content, generally over 16%, and the higher residual sugar, generally over 8%, typically found in port wines coming from Portugal. Most port wine is fortified with distilled spirits such as brandy. But our port-style wine has no fortification, and its higher alcohol content comes from higher brix or sugar levels during the fermentation process.
This sweet, port-style wine offers an intense garnet color, bright Bing cherry aromas, and flavors of black cherry, raspberry, currants, and chocolate. Pairs well with dark chocolate, cheesecake, fruit desserts, and blue (or other bold) cheeses.
