Quady Starboard Batch 88

Quady is the foremost American winery specialising in the production of dessert style wines, winning countless international awards and gaining worldwide acclaim. In 1975 Quady's first port-like wine was made from Amador County Zinfandel. Now it is made from traditional Portuguese varietals such as Tinta Roriz and Tinta Cao and adopts the same method used to produce port in the Douro Valley. Several different vintages are used in this blend, which has an average age of around five years, however only the best wines from the best vintages are used. Stylistically it sits between a ruby and a tawny port. The first year this wine was made was 1988, hence the name Batch 88. Rich and spicy, port-like wine with luscious ripe blackberry, raisin and chocolate truffle flavours on the palate and a fine acidity and soft tannins. Perfect at the end of a meal with a cheese board or chocolate dessert.

Organic Vines in Vineyard

It is estimated that there are more than 10,000 grape varieties in present commercial production, yet this probably includes the same grapes under other names. With the increase of DNA fingerprinting it is thought that the real number might come down closer to 5,000.
