Chalmers Appassimento 2017
Region: Murray Darling
Decadent and charming at once, this little dessert wine is very special. Made from 100% Lambrusco Maestri estate grown at the Merbein vineyard, the grapes are hand-picked then naturally sun-dried on traditional sultana racks before vinification. This concentrates the sugars and reduces the weight meaning that there are 1.5kg of grapes in every 375ml bottle of wine. After a long slow fermentation and ageing in barrique the wine is ready for bottle. The result? Think prunes, Dutch cocoa, black cardamom. Pretty much the perfect cheese plate wine.
