If you hear the name “Elderton Wines” you think of our Barossa Shiraz right? Or perhaps our Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon and its significant win of the Jimmy Watson Trophy years ago comes to mind, either way I am pretty sure a sweet wine is not the first thing that appears in your vision.
However, the Elderton Golden Semillon is a seriously delicious wine, sweet but not sickly, textural without feeling like you need to peel it from the back of your throat. Full of delicious fruit with a perfect acid balance at the finish to allow it to leave a clean, crisp mouthfeel.
Quite often sweet, sticky, or dessert wines as they are commonly referred to are matched solely with, well, dessert. Now there is a reason for that, this style of wine does indeed match perfectly with everything ‘sweet’ including being poured over vanilla ice-cream, but it is worth trying with some different cuisine too!
And if you ask Allister Ashmead, Co-owner and Managing Director of Elderton Wines, it also goes amazingly well with breakfast… nothing like a ‘pick me up’ in the morning…
The moral to this read is open your mind, try different pairings and mix your food and wine until you find something that works – especially when you very least expect it.
