Marie-Elisa is a very rare sweet wine made from Semillon (we only received a few bottles for Illinois). It relies on noble rot for its intensity of flavor, which is helped along by the early morning fog. The grapes are harvested in stages to ensure only the most mature are used. Then, they are gently pressed before fermenting for two to three years in traditional barrels. The result is golden colored wines with aromas of wild flowers and quince jelly.
