Winemaker Notes
This just might be the best vintage of Sweet Louise I have every made. This wine is showing lots of desirable characteristics. The trick with dessert wines is making sure you retain the fruitiness; you do not want to allow the wine to oxidize. Picking late and using frozen grapes to make the wine seems to leave it in a vulnerable state after fermentation and prior to bottling. This vintage made the transition seamlessly and shows intense fruit aromatics. I have made this wine several times over the years and always want to try and do better. This year I am extremely happy with the results. Not as sweet as previous vintages the wine drinks amazingly well on its own. The sugar is balanced with some acidity and while the wine is rich and smooth it does not have an overly cloying body. In past years I found the Sweet Louise was best when poured over fruit or used in cooking, this year I just say pour me a glass and let’s go.
