Coeur d'Or' is only produced when the conditions are ripe for producing 'Sauterne-style' dessert wines. The previous vintage was 2016 and was awarded Australian Wine of the Year 2018, as well as Best Sweet Wine for Australia and New Zealand 2018.
'Coeur d'Or' is a very luscious but refreshing dessert wine, made from botrytised Semillon grapes.Golden colour, with beautiful fruit aromatics, apricot and lime notes with a clean, crisp palate with lovely fresh fruit layers of citron and marmalade. Maturation was in French oak to gain complexity. The palate is clean, rich and dense, with a lovely fresh fruit drive, and layers of citrus and marmalade characters. The length is full with a nice acid lift, and a lovely mouth feel.
'Coeur d'Oris a perfect combination with cheese plates and dessert, as well as pairing beautifully with foie gras or pâté.
