ageing : Drink now - can be kept for 10 years, and will develop deeper minty, resinous aromas and flavours, but who can wait that long?

Production technique: Clairvaux Goden Jerepigo has been fortified with grape spirits.
Description: Clairvaux Golden Jerepigo is a rich, golden dessert wine. The bouquet is unusual, with minty, resinous aromas. The aromas carry through to the palate, and it has a raisin character, resulting in a sweet, fortified dessert wine. With bottle age it will develop a smooth honeyed taste, as previous vintages have matured well.
Maturation Potential: It is made to be very smooth and to drink in the first year. It is superb right now, but develop further complexity as it bottle matures.
Serving temperature: Serve slightly chilled in summer, and at room temperature in winter.
Food recommendation: Delicious over ice cream or crushed ice in the summer, it goes well with warm apple pie and cream, cheese cake and melktert, and is delicious with rich fruitcake. Use it to make a sweet wine tart. Marinate strawberries in Golden Jerepigo for a week in the fridge, and serve with wipped sour cream.
