Tasting Notes

The Goutte D'Or has gone back to being 100% Chenin Blanc Noble Late Harvest. But still in the traditionally elegant, fresh and balanced style that has become a signature of our sweet wine. Fermented and matured in barrel for 12 months to add to the complexity of the concentrated grape flavours.

Fresh zesty lemon and lime combined with orange blossom, hints of spice and honey aromas on the nose. Vibrant and crisp with a refreshing acidity that cuts through on the palate.

Ageing Potential

This wine can be aged for 10 - 15 years
