Very limited special production of a true organic port with no sulfites added. Available here only. Not sold in stores.
The long-awaited Frey Dessertage is a classic port wine, wonderfully rich and sweet. During the harvest of 2002, fermenting organic Zinfandel grape juice was fortified with certified organic brandy, then aged in oak barrels. Unfortunately, a trade agreement between the US and Portugal now prohibits any new US producers of port to use the word "port" on their label. So we call ours Dessertage. A glass of Frey Dessertage is the classic way to top off a meal and celebrate your special occasions. Bottle size is 500ml.
Alcohol: 19.8% by volume.
Total sulfite, naturally occurring: TTB analysis, none detected.
Total production: 450 cases.
