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."
