Marquesa 2013 is the deep, dark secret of Marquette in a classically styled Dessert Wine.
This fortified dessert wine is deep garnet red in colour and is reminiscent of the classic Portuguese dessert wine style. It was lovingly crafted from 100% estate-grown Marquette grapes and aged for 18 months in a combination of American, French & Canadian Oak barrels. Lovely blackberry jam and cinnamon spice on the nose. The palate is wonderfully complex with flavours of spiced raisins, sweet prunes and dried fig. The finish is velvety smooth and beautifully warming. Fortified to 19%.
We highly recommend serving the Marquesa 2012 at room temperature with aged or blue-veined cheeses, candied walnuts or dark chocolate. Also, this wine makes a fine companion to be savoured with a fine cigar.
