VINTAGE AND WINEMAKER'S NOTES: This is the "Eleventh Edition" of port from the Schweiger Family. From our estate Cabernet Sauvignon grapes we created this smooth, intense port. Crushing of the berries is minimized to increase color extraction resulting in a fermentor filled with whole berries. During the fermentation, the wine is punched down three to four times a day, slowly liberating juice from the berries to the fermenting must. Around twelve degrees brix is when the real magic occurs: the brandy addition. Our brandy is produced by our friends at Germain Robin in a traditional alambic still to 142 proof. The sudden spike in alcohol content from the brandy addition arrests the fermentation, leaving the natural sugar from the grape in the finished wine. The wine is then aged solera style, with different vintages being blended together producing the most complex aromas and flavors possible. Enjoy with family and friends. ONLY FIVE BARRELS PRODUCED.
