Glass Slipper Fortified White
700ml / 18% ABV
A small parcel of Chardonnay and Semillon grapes from
Rosa Brook was selected for Glass Slipper. The grapes were
handpicked, crushed and pressed before the juice was ready
to start fermentation. Brandy spirit was later added to stop
fermentation early, resulting in a sweeter and higher alcohol
fortified wine. The wine was kept on lees for 12 months and had a
total of 30 months in aged cognac barrels.

Pale to medium lemon
The Glass Slipper displays aromas of green apple, preserved
lemon with a savoury/salty undertone.
The palate is medium-sweet, savoury with green apple and a
hint of toasted almond. It is a full bodied wine that exhibits rich
flavours and balance with the addition of grape spirit. The finish
is long and dry.
