Stay in with Moorooroo | 2010 Dolce Far Niente Late Harvest Semillon

2010 Dolce Far Niente Late Harvest Semillon


After being harvested in late April from a small vineyard in Greenock, this honey-gold nectar was barrel-aged for nine years to develop a soft, deeply layered palate.

With a gently spiced aroma, Dolce greets you softly. The palate sings with lemons and honey while the finish speaks to age, almond and sultana are balanced by a white nectarine lightness. This late harvest is free from fortification and botrytis allowing for a very gently sweet experience with a mellow, silky consistency that has a generous but crisp finish.

Enjoy Dolce as a compliment to your favourite cheeses, with summer fruits or almond croissants. This wine also pairs beautifully with sweet desserts such as poached pears, citrus tarts and cheesecakes. 

Inspired by the sweet wines of France and the concept of Dolce Far Niente. Take pleasure in idleness, where all that matters is living in the moment.

Drink with

Tricia’s Cherry & Almond Tart


Ingredients

  • shortcrust pastry (we recommend Carême)
  • 120 grams butter at room temperature
  • 150 grams caster sugar
  • 200 grams almond meal
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons brandy
  • 2 tablespoons apricot jam
  • 1 cup fresh pitted cherries
  • flaked almonds
  • icing sugar


Method

1. Pre-heat the oven to 200°c, line a loose-bottomed tart tin with shortcrust and blind bake for 20 minutes.

2. Cream the butter and sugar in a food processor or stand mixer until pale. Add almond meal, eggs and brandy and combine well. 

3. Lower oven to 180°c. Warm the jam up slightly so it spreads easily, and use a pastry brush to coat the baked pastry with the jam. Add the almond mixture and scatter over the cherries, bake for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and scatter over a handful of flaked almonds, return to oven for 10 minutes or until golden and springy to touch.

4. Allow to cool then dust with icing sugar before serving.
