Description: Clairvaux Red Jerepigo is a rich, deep red, sweet, fortified dessert wine. The bouquet is redolent with mature dried fruit and stewed prune aromas. The aromatic bouquet is in perfect harmony as it carries through to the palate, and it has a raisin character. With bottle age it will develop a delicate, silky smooth taste, as previous vintages have matured well.
Maturation Potential: It is very smooth and is drinking superbly right now as it is made to be enjoyed while young and fruity, but will develop further complexity as it bottle matures.
Serving temperature: Serve chilled in summer, and at room temperature in winter.
Food recommendation: Delicious over crushed ice or with ice-cream and blueberries in the summer. It adds zip to a trifle, to the beef or mutton curry, oxtail, Osso Bucco, or potjiekos. It goes well with apple pie and cream, cheese cake and melktert, and is delicious with rich dark fruitcake.
Awards Won - Never entered. It sells to fast.
