Brilliant golden topaz color. Enticing nose of butterscotch, fig, mango, ginger and candied apple. Sweet start with candied pineapple and caramel apple flavors and balanced acidity that refreshes the decadent candied fruit on the palate. Apple, butterscotch and mango flavors dominate this luscious dessert wine. Dearest's finish goes on and on. Enjoy on its own or with Roquefort, stilton or gorgonzola cheeses, dark or white chocolate, crème brulee, as well as fruit pies, tarts, and soufflés. Dearest is the perfect pairing partner for holiday meals. Best served at cellar temperature.
This is a great chardonnay dessert wine. Very fruity with a nice golden/brown color. We enjoyed it very much.
As a late harvest chardonnay it is sweeter than most and therein lies its attraction for certain pairings. When appropriate, you might want to serve it as an after dinner wine. A wonderful VALUE at the price!
Dearest is the perfect ending to a delicious meal. It's dessert in a glass or is perfectly paired with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a piece of apple pie. Yummy!
