Fortified Wine Miniatures
Back in the day, when wine casks were not as air tight as wine bottles, the wine would turn into vinegar due to oxidization. To prevent the wine turning into acetic acid, winemakers usually added spirit to the wine. This drink was hugely accepted by the customers and came to be called fortified wine or dessert wine.
Fortified wine contains higher alcohol content as compared to the traditional wine and is aged in wooden casks. When the spirit is added before the fermentation process of the wine, sweet fortified wine is produced. If the spirit is added after the fermentation process, it produces dry fortified wine. The winemakers have total control in making sweet or dry fortified wine. The drink comes in various different types: Port, Sherry, Marsala, Madeira, all named after the location of origin. Port wine and sweet Madeira wine is perfect to be sipped along with desserts or paired with food.
