Epoque Monbazillac 375ml 2015

Sweet or dessert wines are now more popular than ever! It was a must for us to find a very special wine that would match sweet desserts liked poached pears as well as some serious cheeses for a sophisticated end to your meal. And we got one! We are not super sweet fans so this wine was right in our wheelhouse.

Monbazillac is surely the most famous of all the Dordogne wines, just south-east of the famed Bordeaux region. Its vineyard, spread across the south slope of the Dordogne valley, is also one of the oldest in the region. This terroir produces very elegant botrytis affected wines, which reveal a captivating bouquet of acacia honey and spices. This is not quite as viscous or medicinally sweet as your typical Australian produced noble rot wines. It is all about elegance! It is made with the grape varieties muscadelle and semillon, is fermented in stainless steel, and aged in barrels for 12 months before bottling.

The golden colour when pouring it is mesmerising. It has excellent length, notes of citrus and candied apricots are stand outs, and the first taste will send you into a trance. We matched this with an Ash goat’s cheese from Minchinbury NSW (click for recipe), and let us tell you, it was sensational!
