2018 The Don
Adelaida Estate Vineyards
The Don is a fortified sweet wine made in the traditional method, using authentic Portuguese varieties. This wine celebrates Adelaida’s co-founder, Don Van Steenwyk, who is pictured on the bottle.
The wine is opaque and lush with deeply extracted, heady flavors of blackberries, marionberries, raspberries, and hints of minty herbs. A second sip reveals a sense of mulled fruit preserves with overtones of sweet cedar and dark chocolate.
