Hermitage Dessert Wine

2011 Harvest at Hermit Woods Winery
Made from our first harvest from our young vineyard, this pyment is a field blend of our grapes combined with local honey to balance the high acidity of the grapes. Grapes include Cayuga, Noiret, Chelois, GR7, Sabrevois, Frontenac, and Marachel Foch.  Our grapes are grown organically and hand harvested and this year the grapes did not reach high sugar content, so we blended in honey and back sweetened the wine to provide some balance.  Still a tangy, mouth watering wine best consumed slightly chilled and paired with light foods and cheese.
