Clarendon Hills Shiraz Moritz 2002
Totally black purple colour with purple hue. Intense aroma of violets, spice, blackberry and cassis followed by spearmint and a hint of leather. The palate is totally concentrated with strong coffee, liquorice and plum flavours over a very distinctive white pepper background. Fine dry tannins, perfectly balanced to the fruit with long aftertaste of confectionary, white pepper and spice.
Clarendon Hills is a small family run winery based in Clarendon, South Australia. With a philosophy to convey variety expression at an ultimate level, hand performance of every task ensures each step of the process is exacting to specification. Making wine in an old-school, low technology fashion - each decision bases the sight, smell, taste and interpretation as its mechanics.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
