Los Vientos Alcyone Tannat Dessert Wine
This dessert wine is made from 100% tannat and combines two dessert wine production methods. As with Ports and Marsala the fermentation of the wine is stopped with the addition of Brandy. This means that not all the grapes sugars have been converted to alcohol and the wine retains a natural sweetness. The Alcyone also follows the Barolo Chinato method by flavouring the wine with herbs and spices. The resulting drink has a radiant purple hue and honey like texture. Flavours of Madagascan vanilla bean and a hit of cherries and spice with a long velvety finish.
