Neither sweet nor dry and light in body, these wines belong to a unique category of fine Port vinification method wines. After the fermentation is stopped with the addition of grape spirit, these wines are aged for a minimum of 4 years in a neutral oak Solera system.

The name Meleau™ is pronounced, mellow. It is a fanciful term derived from Latin and French, meaning nectar and distilled spirit: nectar because the yeast is grown in honey, "mel," and distilled spirit for "eau"-de-vie.

Meleau wines can be aged beyond one's lifetime in a wine cellar and once opened, 6 months recorked.
