Though enthused by the Amarone wines from Valpolicella, White Boar is a different beast altogether. Rather than harvesting the grapes and drying them on racks, the canes are cut once the preferred flavour spectrum has urbanized, which permits the fruit to dry and then raisin on the vine. This process takes nearly two weeks.
The grapes are specially selected before being softly guided through a slow fermentation. These vine concentrated wines are made as a combination component for the single vineyard Battle of Bosworth wines, but luckily in 2004 we prepared sufficient for this small bottling of the White Boar.
