Our 2007 Ferrari-Carano Eldorado Gold comes from Sonoma County and is a blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes. Eldorado Gold created when a beneficial mold, botrytris cinerea, infects the grapes, evaporating water content and concentrating sugars, acids and flavors. Intense aromas of dried apricot, nutmeg, pralines and maple are complemented by honey, orange peel, pear and vanilla bean. A long, lingering finish echoes dried apricot and honey, along with caramel and pecans.
Rhonda's Recipe and Pairing NotesApplesauce Walnut Cake with Caramel Glaze
The 2007 Eldorado Gold is exceptional paired with light fruit desserts such as apricot or apple tart, lemon desserts, and hazelnut or almond cookies. Dense buttery pound cake, summer berries, crème brulee, caramel sauce and aged cheeses also pair nicely.
