Marichiweu Fortified

Appellation: Casablanca

A fortified wine is a wine that has been fortified with a chemical compound (grape ethyl alcohol). These compounds are used to prevent wine from spoiling during storage. They can be used in a number of ways, including as a preservative, to protect wines from spoilage, and as a flavoring agent.

The most common fortified wines are sherry and port. Sherry is made from grapes treated with sugar and spices, while port is made from grapes treated with salt and spices.

In addition to being used in winemaking, fortified wines can also be used for other purposes. For example, they can be used to preserve food or drinks such as ice cream or frozen yogurt.

In addition to being useful for winemaking, fortified wines can also be used for other purposes, such as brewing beer or cocktails.
