Apera Rich Sweet is made from Pedro Ximines and Grenache. Pedro Ximénez is a Spanish grape variety grown on 2.46 hectares at Sevenhill Cellars.
Apera is a blended wine of several years, not a single vintage, which has been matured in large old oak barrels. Fruit for this fortified wine is generally picked towards the end of vintage when the grapes have been allowed to stay on the vine until they shrivel and have high sugar levels.
Apera Rich Sweet is vibrant strawberry red in colour. The nose is characterised by prunes and strawberries, with concentrated berry and licorice flavours on the palate and a silky mouth feel.
