Gaspereau Limited Edition Reserve Marechal Foch 2015

About 50% of this wine was made from dried Marechal Foch grapes. Drying grapes naturally concentrates the sugar, extract, tannin and flavor of a wine. The concentrated sugar is converted to an alcohol content that is higher than from grapes that have not been dried (14.5%). As a result of the higher alcohol, extract and tannin, the wine has a richer and weightier palate. The dried grapes began fermentation on their own and then the rest of the Marechal Foch was added during the fermentation. After primary fermentation and Malolactic fermentation, the blend was aged in French oak barrels for 12 months.
