Our Vintage is a classic from Frederiksdal Cherry Wine. It is our most fruity wine, made on the Nordic grape; the unique Danish Stevens Cherry exclusively with cherries from our own orchards.
VINIFICATION: The cherries come from our young trees on Skelstrupmark, which give fruit and freshness, and a bit from our oldest trees on Nielstrupmark, which adds structure and intensity.
The cherries are fermented on skins and stones for 4-5 days to add more complexity and taste. Then the cherries are pressed and fermented on steel tanks, as it preserves the fruit flavor best.
To maintain maximum fruit, the wine is bottled directly from the steel tanks.
When the bottle is open, the wine can easily last for 1-2 weeks, if it is kept in a cool place.
HISTORY: Frederiksdal vintage wine was produced in 2008 (very few bottles), 2009, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2015 and now in 2016. It has since the beginning been a ‘darling’ among the reviewers.
Frederiksdal 2016 is a ‘softer’ and more fruity wine than before and has already received an honorary prize in the International Food Contest 2018, where Frederiksdal 2016 was
awarded winning and got the highest score in the wine and alcohol category with 98 out of 100-points.
