2016 Hallelujah Port
Tasting notes

Portuguese varietals Touriga Nacional and Souzão from Uplands Estate on Snipes Mountain were fermented to 7 brix, and then the fermentation was arrested with 188 proof grape hooch. Aged for 22 months in 25% new French oak. Opaquely black in color, with great balance and length, Hallelujah is hedonistic, balanced, rich and nuanced. The nose is loaded with raisins, exotic flowers and cedar leading to silky flavors of orange liqueur, licorice, blackberry, cherry, caramel, cinnamon, bittersweet chocolate and tobacco. Enjoy for the next 100 years or so. 

Food Pairing:  Stilton on walnut toast, simply.
Movie Pairing:  A Clockwork Orange

FOUNDERS' NOTES:
We started tinkering with Portuguese varietals in 2010 to make a fortified dessert wine, primarily for winemaker dinners. 50% Touriga Nacional, 50% Souzāo, plus 188 proof grape spirits makes for some pretty deep powerful age worthy deliciousness. Named Hallelujahbecause that's how we feel when we've had a lovely multi-course dinner, are sitting with a fine buzz and then we get served that little something extra in the form of a port. Hallelujah!
