Vintage Port is a wine fortified with brandy spirit and made in a single year, not a blend of different vintages. Tawny ports are generally made from a blend of
different vintages. Vintage ports can be made from red or white grapes. Another name for port is Australian fortified wine, as port wine is fortified, ie made stronger with brandy spirit.
Organic Brandy spirit is an alcohol that is very strong, ideally it is 95% alc or 190 proof spirit added to the fermenting port wine juice to stop the fermentation and keep the port wine sweet.
Shiraz 2018 Fortified Vintage Port (Bronze Medal). Sun ripened dry-grown organic Shiraz was hand picked at a high sugar level from our local organic vineyard on the 6th March 2018. After crushing, the ferment was started with natural yeasts and continued, quiet warm, at 30C until the ferment proceeded through 11 Baume'. Then the must was drained, basket pressed and returned to an open fermenter. Once the sugar was a desirable level the wine was fortified with certified organic neutral brandy spirit prior to underground cellaring and maturation in oak casks.
