Quady Vya Sweet Vermouth 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Vya sweet vermouth, inspired by the best Italian sweet vermouths, is all about sensations which stimulate the taste buds, producing a mouth-watering effect. Vya sweet induces a warm tingling in the mouth with a subtle balance of bitter and sweet. According to classic references, sweet muscat is the preferred base wine for sweet vermouth. For Sweet Vya, a special base wine using Orange Muscat and Valdepenas (for its red fruit tones) was made. The botanicals consist of bark, roots, seeds, and citrus rind. Cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, and galangal (wild asian ginger), are some of the constituents.

Tasting Notes - Imagine a warm tingling sensation and a spicy aroma. This is the idea behind Vya sweet vermouth. Cinnamon gives warmth while gentian, galangal and nutmeg add spice. Wines from Orange Muscat, Colombard, and Valdepenas provide a fruity background. Enjoy Vya sweet on the rocks, mixed half and half with Vya extra-dry (our favorite vermouth aperitif), or mixed with fine bourbon (the greatest Manhattan), or with a fine scotch (the best Rob Roy).
