Tastes like a combination of sherry and ice wine – fortified and sweet – but with a dry finish due to its 20% alcohol content. The light infusion of maple syrup provides a warming, not-too-sweet maple sensation. Winemaker, Jeff Murphy, used local maple syrup from Red’s Best in Clymer, New York, selecting a grade of syrup that he felt brought out the best flavor and balance to this special blend of Vidal Blanc wine and neutral grape spirits.
