For the drinker who likes their fortified wines on the earthy side, this one is for you. Dried leaf aromas recall a crisp autumn day, while fig and date tones give ample dried-fruit depth to the nose. Full and luscious on the palate, rich sultana meets grilled apricot while roasted mixed nuts linger on the finish.
Formerly working in the Finger Lakes wine region of upstate New York, Peartree's passion for terroir-expressive products, which spans from wine to cider and tea, is only rivaled by his love of canoeing and hiking. He prefers to focus on wines from Virginia, Michigan, Texas and other smaller U.S. regions, as well as domestic and international cider.
