      Winemaker Notes

      This limited production wine has layers of melon, vanilla and honey. Toasty oak, sweet fig, and tobacco, a balanced acidity, Asian spices and a rich-honeyed finish. Made from single berry selection in vineyard and winery, barrel fermented and aged in French oak cooperage. Fermentation is very slow and steady, lasting almost a month. The wine is then aged in French oak for 19 months until bottling.

      Extra-ordinarily sweet, with fantastic honey, apricot, pineapple, orange marmalade, buttered toast and vanilla cream flavors. What’s not to like? Could be more complex, but dazzles for sheer decadence.

      R.A. Harrison, California

      Roger Harrison for many in the wine industry has been known as Mr. Botrytis. Since 1983 he has worked at Beringer on the Nightingale wines made from highly concentrated grapes blessed with botrytis cinera (noble rot). These are very rare and hard to make wines. They require special winemaking expertise to maximize the rare weather conditions that produce these rare and noble wines. With the right winemaker and special weather conditions highly concentrated sweet wines such as Chateau Y'Quem in Sauterne, France, can be made.

      After 25 years perfecting these rare dessert wines at Beringer, Roger launched his own winery, R.A. Harrison Family Cellars, dedicated to special botrytised wines. The winemaking and grapes selected for these wines are very similar to those used at Chateau Y'Quem.

      Responsible for the vast majority of American wine production, if California were a country, it would be the world’s fourth largest wine-producing nation. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredible range of wine styles, and unlike tradition-bound Europe, experimentation is more than welcome here. Wineries range from tiny, family-owned boutiques to massive corporations, and price and production are equally varied. Plenty of inexpensive bulk wine is made in the Central Valley area, while Napa Valley is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and expensive “cult” wines.

      Each American Viticultural Area (AVA) and sub-AVA of has its own distinct personality, allowing California to produce wine of every fashion: from bone dry to unctuously sweet, still to sparkling, light and fresh to rich and full-bodied. In the Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc dominate vineyard acreage. Sonoma County is best known for Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Rosé and Zinfandel. The Central Coast has carved out a niche with Rhône Blends blends based on Grenache and Syrah, while Mendocino has found success with cool climate varieties such as Pinot noir, Riesling and Gewürztraminer. With all the diversity that California has to offer, any wine lover will find something to get excited about here.

      Apart from the classics, we find many regional gems of different styles.

      Late harvest wines are probably the easiest to understand. Grapes are picked so late that the sugars build up and residual sugar remains after the fermentation process. Ice wine, a style founded in Germany and there referred to as eiswein, is an extreme late harvest wine, produced from grapes frozen on the vine, and pressed while still frozen, resulting in a higher concentration of sugar. It is becoming a specialty of Canada as well, where it takes on the English name of ice wine.

      Vin Santo, literally “holy wine,” is a Tuscan sweet wine made from drying the local white grapes Trebbiano Toscano and Malvasia in the winery and not pressing until somewhere between November and March.

      Rutherglen is an historic wine region in northeast Victoria, Australia, famous for its fortified Topaque and Muscat with complex tawny characteristics.
