Components for this style are carefully fermented and then fortified with high strength grape spirit at pre determined sugar levels to arrest fermentation. These components are then clarified and adjusted before the blending process. Blending is then skillfully and carefully carried out to produce this fresh fruit driven tawny style. Up to forty components can be blended together in this style and it is here that the winemaker’s blending skill is utilised in balancing fruit and palate structure.
