Ad Astra

Ad Astra came straight out of the tasting trials. We were not quite sure what to do with this wine, so in the lab we did some trials, added a little of this and that, fortified it a bit and came up with a great end. Ad Astra is a port style, dessert wine. We have been aging it with french oak for four weeks. This has helped the wine’s fruity aromas to mature through oxidation, giving it a bouquet of dried fruit and toasty oak. Ad Astra is a 2009 vintage, and with age has come a great smoothness. Can’t wait for you to try a glass.
