Last Barrel is our inaugural production of high end fortified wine series. A very rare style in the Niagara Region, made from our family estate grapes. Not only is it rare but we also added a unique angle, as we used two not so common grape varieties. The white is Semillon aged 5 years in barrel, the red is Malbec aged 8 years in barrel. These barrels were fortified prior to bottling with very smooth grape spirit and lightly chaptalized with sweetness to compliment. As one would guess, Last Barrel means exactly that. One white and one red barrel that is more unique than the rest were chosen back in the day and left behind to become even more special. So special that this process only results in 250 bottles ever made and every bottle is hand numbered as proof of this.
Last Barrel White: Fortified Semillon, Barrel Aged 5 Years. Aroma is a blend of Lemon, nectarine with a hint of honey. Very complex fruit salad, teamed up with subtle spice from the barrel greats your pallet and has a great combination of acid and sweetness. Beautiful sipping wine on its own or with a collection of cheeses.
