Domaine Rolet, MacVin


Varietal: Savagnin

Origin: Jura, France


Tasting notes: Macvin du Jura is made by fortifying unfermented Savagnin must, with Marc du Jura; a Brandy made from grape pomace, a by-product of pressing. The high alcohol prevents fermentation, killing any yeast, and creating a naturally sweet ‘wine’, with a similar alcohol level to Port. This is then cask aged for 22 months, to add a slight tannin and impart complimentary flavours from the Oak. Although sweet, this is not a luscious wine, and it benefits from the naturally high acidity of its base grape. This lifts the sugar and prevents it from appearing cloying.
