Columbia Valley, Washington ABV: 19.75%
Portuguese varietals Touriga Nacional and Souzão from Uplands Estate on Snipes Mountain were fermented to 7 brix, and then the fermentation was arrested with 164 proof grape distillate. It was then aged for 22 months in 25% new French oak. Almost impenetrably black in color, with great balance and length, Hallelujah is hedonistic, balanced, rich and nuanced. The nose is loaded with orange liqueur, raisins, exotic flowers and cedar leading to silky flavors of licorice, blackberry, cherry, caramel, cinnamon, bittersweet chocolate and tobacco. Enjoy for the next 100 years or so.
We started tinkering with Portuguese varietals in 2010 in order to produce a fortified dessert wine, primarily for winemaker dinners. Half touriga naçional, half souzao, plus 182 proof grape spirits makes for some pretty deep powerful age worthy deliciousness. Named Hallelujah because that's how we feel when we've had a lovely multi-course dinner, are sitting with a fine buzz and then we get served that little something extra in the form of a port. Hallelujah!
