Hermes - Dessert wine

Hermes is the Greek name for the planet Mercury, the closest planet to the sun. For the appassimento (withering) of these indigenous, aromatic grapes the sun is an indispensable element for the typicality of this wine. After the harvest in October, the grapes are allowed to wither further, followed by cold maceration.  The wine then spends 3 years aging in glass lined cement tanks with a further 6 months in the bottle before release.  Hermes has a rich bouquet and a taste that is sweet and soft with flavors reminiscent of dried pears and apricots and an aftertaste of amber honey and melon.  This is a perfect wine to enjoy as an aperitif or with dried fruits, cheeses, sweet pastries and all types of desserts.
