Winemaker’s Notes:
This dessert wine was made by adding Canadian Spirits on day three of the fermentation, thus raising the alcohol to 15.4% and leaving the natural sugar unfermented and then barrel aged.

A port style wine (10). Pair it with chocolate for a special treat.

Vintage: (undated)

15.4% alc./vol.
VQA Ontario.

Price: 375 mL $10

    Just when I thought Spring was around the corner old man winter reminded us that he ain’t finished yet. A cold blast of arctic air this weekend, bone chilling temperatures and another dumping of snow left me searching for something to warm me up. A quick search of the wines I have on hand that I have not yet reviewed uncovered this treat, D’Angelo’s Fortified Foch, a “Port like” wine, timing was just right.

    Dark purple colour in the glass.

    The nose offers ripe, raisin notes mingled with coffee beans and mocha.

    Heavy on the palate due to higher alcohol and sugar levels which is nice for a change of pace. Like the nose, ripe raisins, coffee beans, mocha were noted. Although high in alcohol it does not overpower and dominate. There is a fine balance of alcohol, sweetness, and light tannins and ripe fruits. Despite the higher alcohol content it does not overheat the palate or burn. It is warm on the way down, which is not a bad thing when you want to warm up in a hurry. 🙂

    A real treat after dinner or when coming inside from the cold

    In an instant, this wine became my preferred choice. Very good, strong-body, warm going down!
