More tirpatone from TheBloodyPulpit:
1. 6 Degree: This is a rather bizarre but interesting late hrvst wine. BonVivant is an importer that specializes in natural wines. The 6 Degree website indicates that they follow natural winemaking techniques but don't label themselves as such. The wine certainly didn't show much, if any, natty character. Quite an interesting if pricey dessert wine.
