Frederiksdal Kirsebaervin "Reserve" Cherry Wine, Denmark (500ml)

SKU #1245235

From the producer: "Our reserve wine is even more complex than our standard range. The wine is produced from the Stevnsbær cherries which are left to ferment in open vats for a day after the harvest. The fermentation gives this wine a multitude of nuances. An amalgamation of several vintages, our reserve wine is matured in small, 225-litre, French wooden barrels for up to 30 months. The wine’s prolonged contact with the wood of the casks imparts subtle coffee and chocolate notes to it. The wine is partly fortified with our own cherry distillate which brings in the subtle aromas of the wild cherry and wild raspberry to balance the flavour. The wine has a complexity and finesse to match a variety of savoury dishes. It is suitable for game, braised beef, sharp cheeses, pâtés and terrines. Also makes a delicious addition to any chocolate-based desserts. You can store our reserve wine in the cellar for many years. Once opened, it will retain its flavour and aroma for several months if left in a cool place. Decant this wine before serving."

Is it a dessert wine, is it a late harvest wine, is it a cordial? This cherry wine from Denmark has recently been making a bit of a splash in Europe and it made us curious to taste it. I had a few preconceived notions about what it would probably taste like going into it, and this wine did not fit neatly into my categories. I was expecting it to be sweet, and while there is sweetness there, it was not as much a dessert wine as I was expecting. Instead the tartness of the cherries helps keep this wine from going into a syrupy style. The flavors are almost reminiscent of the ripeness of an Amarone with some of the herbs of a kirsch. It can stand up to chocolate as a dessert wine, or before dinner with charcuterie. It is odd and tasty and worth trying.

Additional Information:



- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
