SantoWines Santorini Vinsanto 2013
SantoWines Santorini Vinsanto is a naturally sweet wine produced with sun dried grapes. For the 2013 vintage, the grapes were sun-dried from 6-8 days then a slow fermentation for another 40-60 days. The wine is then aged for 36 months in French oak barrels followed by further aging in the bottle. As a result this aging the wine is a beautiful amber colour in the glass. It has a complex nose with aromas ranging from dried fruits such as raisins and apricots to sweet spices like cloves and cinnamon. A lovely palate balanced by a fine thread of acidity cutting through the sweetness. Pair this delicious drop with sweet, cheese, fresh fruits, or dried nuts.
