Brilliant light gold color. Attractive aromas and flavors of fresh pannetone, vanilla honey buttercream on graham cracker, nougat and candy corn, and banana custard pie with a silky, bright, fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, intricate, long finish with notes of creamy toasted meringue, caramelized stone fruits, and delicate spices finish. A wonderfully creamy and effortlessly drinkable brandy that will appeal to wine drinkers.

Grape Brandy is Brandy distilled from fermented grape juice or crushed but not pressed grape pulp and skin. This spirit is aged in wooden casks (usually oak) which colors it, mellows the palate, and adds additional aromas and flavors.
