♦ A wax sealed bottle is a beautiful addition to your wine rack, but can be intimidating when it comes time to open it. This is easier than you may think! Simply plunge your corkscrew through the wax, as if it were not even there. Lift the cork slightly and wipe any wax crumbles from the opening. Pull the cork the rest of the way out and enjoy!

Winemaker Notes
A regal dessert wine made from overripe grapes which develop Botrytis cinerea, or “Noble Rot”, shriveling the skins and enhancing sugar, acid, and flavor intensity. This succulent and deliciously spicy white wine is made in the style of some of the world’s greatest dessert wines, such as Sauternes and the “dried grape” white wines of Sicily such as “Passito di Pantelleria”.
Food Pairing Notes
Enjoy with dried fruit (especially figs), or foie gras with honey or almond paste on a crostini to show its complex and intriguing aromas and succulent spice.
