About this wine

For lazy days and ambitious ideas: GOING BACK AGES Stéphane was first introduced to Pineau des Charentes by his grandmother, Mémé. She lives an hour north of Cognac, a stone’s throw from Bordeaux, where this local fortified sweet wine is mostly enjoyed before dinner. When Stéphane met a man who pushed him to make this magical potion of his youth, followed closely by one who knew where to get California’s best brandy, he knew the stars had aligned. With healthy skepticism from his wife Dana, Stéphane poured his heart and soul into making his own beloved Pineau des Charentes. The result is magical indeed. Even Dana agrees. WINEMAKING NOTES The 2016 Sexton Vivier is a blend of Syrah, Merlot and Pinot Noir grape juice and locally-sourced, fresh-distilled Chardonnay brandy from our friends at Stillwater spirits in Petaluma, California. The wine is bottled with 122 grams per liter of residual sugar. TASTING NOTES Sexton Vivier (named in honor of other things in Stéphane’s life which, like this wine, are sweet and special) teases the senses with notes of dried Turkish apricots, concord grape and pomegranate seed, spiced up by hints of black tea and orange peel. Drink Chilled.
