‘Holy’ moly is this wine perfect. The name itself speaks volumes, right? The wine spends 6 years in barrel and then a further 12 months in bottle. This is a sweet wine and nectar of the gods in our humble opinion. The name’s origin is disputed; ‘holy’ wine used for celebrating Mass, or may be derived from the Greek volcanic island of Santorini, whichever story is true, it is a wine long associated with special occasions, made laboriously and with love in small quantities rather than for commercial profit. Can we honestly ask for more!?
