Bobbi Jo is known as quite the little firecracker. Her luscious flavours of ripe dates, toasty pecans, dark chocolate, and lingering black cherry have got the whole town in an uproar!
Each cherry is hand-picked, then destemmed by hand, before a very gentle pressing. The wine is fortified with a neutral spirit, then aged in solera for three years before blending and bottling. The solera method is a Spanish technique in which “mother barrels” were established in 2013. Each time we make Cherry Baby, part of the total volume produced is removed from the solera and bottled, and the remaining volume returned to the solera for more beauty sleep. This means the oldest wine (from the 2013 vintage), is present in a small percentage, following the Spanish philosophy “the oldest wine teaching the youngest.”
A little glass of Cherry Baby is a great way to complete a meal. She’s also fantastic with dark chocolate, including Black Forest Cake!
