About Wine Specialty
Wine Specialty is a category for higher alcohol wine based on aperitifs with a variety of flavorings that are sold in the spirits channel, but are not traditional fortified wines. This includes fruit aperitifs from Poland at 36 proof made from cherry and peach; Pineau des Charentes, a French aperitif made from wine grapes and Cognac eau-de-vie, and spiced dessert wine, made from herbs steeped in sweet wine. These specialty wines can have multiple purposes, be it drinking on their own, use in cocktails or even in cooking.

Bright brilliant gold color. Delicate, floral, fruity jammy aromas of caramelized nuts, dried fruits, and delicate spice with a satiny, crisp, fruity sweet light-to-medium body and a polished, interesting, medium-length toasted almonds, peach, golden raisins, and honey finish. A delicious, juicy, and refreshing aperitif.
