West Cape Howe WinesVintage Description: Deep golden amber, sultanas and boiled fruit cake. A palate of brandy snaps and boiled fruit cake its like Christmas in a bottle.
Winemaking Information:Majority of material is 8 years old and sourced from the Swan Valley floor and Bindoon (only one patch of Muscat remains in the swan, mostly replaced with other varities). Very ripe fruit fermented to 100 Be. Spirit (SVR) is then added which kills the yeast and stops fer-mentation. Spirit increases the alcohol to the desired level. Stored in old barrels to allow evaporation in warm conditions which helps to evaporate any water and concentrate the flavours
