In 2008 Frederiksdal produced its first 200 bottles, production is now at 40,000 bottles and ranges from sparkling to dessert wine. Frederiksdal employs techniques that are more commonly used in port and wine production. They use a Danish heritage variety known as Stevnsbær, which are fermented for three to five days. Natural yeasts are employed, while select wines are also barrel-aged or aged outdoors in carboys. They probably make the worlds best cherry wine.
Sur Lie is aged in French oak casks, between 225 and 450 litres in volume, and is the result of an amalgamation of 2-3 different vintages. The amalgamation of mature and young vintages lends this wine a further degree of complexity. This really is a nuanced wine and one that is a perfect companion to plain chocolate, marinated berries, cakes and, not least, dessert dishes. Sur Lie benefits from a period of decanting before serving. You can leave the wine open in a cool place for a few months.
