Wisconsin grown grapes in Wisconsin White Oak.
This brandy is a varietal brandy – just one kind of grape went into it. LaCresent grapes grown at Vernon Vineyards. LaCresent is known for it’s aroma, and this brandy is nearly perfume. It’s brilliant and floral and very not Korbel.
In keeping with our historic inspiration, our Brandy was aged in new, charred oak, as we believe all early American spirits would have been. That adds a certain smoky/spiciness that is unusual for a brandy.
Why ‘Immature’? No, it doesn’t spend its time whinging. Sorry – whining. Federal regulation say that ‘brandy’, unadorned, must be at least two years old. But we didn’t want that much oak infusion. Or to loose any more aroma to oxidation through the wood grain. So we bottled it early.
