Wine Review: Veramar Vineyard D'ora 2017 Virginia Dessert Wine

Veramar Vineyard D'ora 2017 Virginia Dessert Wine

Veramar Vineyard is part of the Bogati Wine Family and I've reviewed a bunch of wine by these guys. Just at the end of last month I reviewed their 2016 Malbec and 2017 Vidal Blanc. To learn more about Bogati and see my other reviews, check out the Virginia label for the blog.

I've got to make this review quick so let's get to it! The 2017 D'ora is a 14% ABV dessert wine made from Vidal Blanc; a hybrid grape made from the Vitis vinifera variety Ugni Blanc and another hybrid grape called Rayon d'Or. Harvest was pushed back as far as they could, sugar was increased where needed, and it did not see the development of any noble rot.
