Uniquely mellow and spirited
fine Port vinification methods wines.*
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 a 170-proof grape spirit, these wines are aged in a neutral oak Solera system, which was established in 2010.
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.
Aging potential: beyond one's life time in a wine cellar and once opened, 6 months recorked, stored away from direct sun light and in a cool place (does not require refrigeration).
