our Vin Santo (as far as we know) is the only one in the world to be produced using a solera system, meaning that we always have two years of wine aging in ½ barriques. When we top off our barrels, we always use the oldest new wine. “It’s a perpetual system that’s both very simple but also provides for a semi-consistent and delicious wine – it’s something that can actually be referred to as unique,” Peter describes.
The wine, the result of a 10-year solera process, is utterly fascinating. Dark brown in color, it begins with aromas of maple, brown sugar and raisin. The palate’s texture is most unique—both viscous and waxy yet brisk with remnants of acidity, carrying flavors of toasted macadamia nut and hazelnut as well as butterscotch.
