TASTE

Sweet notes of dried dates, sweet figs, and vinous dark raisins waft in the warm, aromatic stillness of earthy wood and smooth, creamy spirits. In the amber lights of this mahogany barleywine, hints of vanilla, toffees, and espresso emerge in ephemeral glimmers of this solera’s self-reflexive creation.

STYLE

Lively and hot, barelywines are lively and complex. As part of our solera barrel program, this silken, gentle beast exists as both a vessel of the past and a seed of incarnations to come.

SERVE WITH

Excellent with especially rich Stilton cheese or other complex, aged cheeses with a mound of fresh strawberries.  As an aperitif or an after dinner sipper, Divinity also cuddles nicely with super dark chocolate for a classic dessert.
