First port wine… named Cantor
Just as sparkling wine may not be called champagne, our latest creation may not be called port. And yet it is made the same way. Super ripe and aroma-deep red grapes of Cabernet Cantor from the 2018 vintage, intensive maceration, stopped at the perfect time by adding alcohol and then a two-year barrel aging. Whether port, cherry, marsala or, as we Germans say without frills, “wine aperitif”, these voluminous, subtly sweet wines are in a class of their own. Our “Cantor” is given the name affix MMXVIII to make it distinguishable from subsequent vintages. Even though the 2020 “Cantor” has already been aging in wooden barrels for a few days, it will take two years for the successor to be just right.
