Buy Imported and Australian Fortified Wine in Australia

Fortified wine is a type of wine that is made by adding distilled spirits during the fermentation process. These wines are then aged in wooden barrels and are usually sipped on before or after a meal. Liberty Liquors is a leading retailer of fortified wine in Australia, with mid-range and premium types of fortified wine available for online purchase and delivery.

 

What is Fortified Wine?

Fortified wine is loved for its slightly viscous texture, cask aged flavour and complexity on the palate.

The common types of fortified wine are Madeira, Marsala, Sherry and Vermouth. The history of these wines can be traced back to the times when, in order to preserve wine on long sea voyages, a distilled spirit was added to stall fermentation and prevent the wine from turning into vinegar. The addition of a spirit greatly enhanced the flavour as well as the alcohol content, which typically ranges from about 15 to 20 percent.

Whether you’re looking for an Australian fortified wine or an imported label, there are plenty of options ranging from dry to sweet, based on the individual’s taste.
