Haute Cabriere - 'Ratafia' Chardonnay 2015

Rare and Excellent

 Franschhoek - South Africa

 Fortified Sweet Wine


"Such a fantastic wine. I remember first trying this a few years ago and man what an eye-opener. Ratafia is now a generic term for a fortified wine that is made like a Port whereby the fermentation is halted about halfway by a brandy or neutral spirit in order to retain the sweetness. This example of a ratafia from Haute Cabriere uses the Chardonnay grapes that would have gone into their Pierre Jourdan sparkling wines and as a result is a zesty and stonefruit gem. Loaded with brown sugar, cooked peaches, vanilla custard tart and candied kumquats - this a wine you won't soon forget."

Sweet wines are surprisingly versatile when it comes to food pairing.

They are perfect accompanied by:

Soft and Blue Cheeses

Starch-rich foods

Cured Meats – less spiced

Foie Gras
