Non Vintage Coeur De Colline Port Style Dessert Wine 375ml
The new Coeur de Colline has been in the works for almost 4 years. The previous Coeur de Colline was vintage dated and only came from 1 vintage. Going forward it will be a blend of multiple years. This style of blending is referred to as Solera. So, going forward each new bottling will have a different blend but the average age of wine will get older. This first blend is made up of 2012, 2013, and 2014. Next year it will be a blend of 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015.
The wine smells like dark cedar and dense chocolate with high tones of sweet milk chocolate and espresso beans. Baked Toffee and salted pecans round out this exceptional wine. Expect 20 years or more of aging potential.
Wonderful to sip all by itself, and useful for restoring warmth and energy during a long winter’s evening, the wine pairs well with small bits of rich, sweet and creamy delights: chocolate, dried fruits, toasted nuts and mellow aged Stilton blue cheese, sweet breads and biscuits.
