Picked in late November when the "Noble Rot" causes the sugars to be at their peak, our Late Harvest Riesling, at 13.5% residual sugar, has sweet honey and juicy ripe peach flavors with great balancing acidity. (375ml half-bottle)
Solera-made, wood-aged wine, fortified with brandy. Our Solera is over 120 years old, one of the oldest in the U.S. The wine is sweet and luscious with flavors of almonds, caramel, toffee and orange zest. It shares similar characteristics with a 20-year-old Tawny Port. A collector’s wine.
Regina is made from 57% Semillon & 43% Sauvignon Blanc, which lends to the resulting wine a very rich, sweet and viscous character. The grapes are left on the vine, and harvested very late in the season, very similar to how French Sauternes are made. 375ml bottle
This botrytised White Riesling, grown at our Henry Ranch vineyard in Carneros, was harvested a full two months after the regular harvest. The grapes were fully infected with the “noble rot” (botrytis cinerea), a fungus which naturally increases sugars. Depending on the conditions, botrytis can be either beneficial or devastating to grapes. (375ml half-bottle)
There’s a very sensual allure about our Muscat dessert wine. It’s related to the Moscato made in the northern Italian province of Piedmonte in the Asti area where Moscato di Canelli is the grape used. These grapes yield a wine that is highly scented and very distinguishable, with the pronounced aromas of ripe peach, orange blossom and spice.
The Italians like sparkling wines, but they prefer them lightly so "Frizzante" they say. Our Moscato is lighter-bodied, slightly carbonated, lower in alcohol and with just a little sweetness. We like them too!
Angelica is a fortified wine traditionally associated with the Mission grape, from which it was made since the early days of California winemaking. V. Sattui instead uses the fresh juice of the Muscat of Alexandria grape and enhances it with brandy.
