Cooralook Shiraz Heathcote 2007
WINEMAKER'S NOTES Deep Ruby with a Brilliant Purple Hue this lovely intense Shiraz fruit leaps from the glass. Dark berry fruit spice and cloves are dominate. There is complexity already evident on this brooding young wine with underlying scents of pepper provincial herbs and classy French oak. The 2007 Cooralook Shiraz embodies the affinity between the Heathcote region and the Shiraz grape. The palate is loaded with dark fruited intense Shiraz flavors and illustrates why this wine is so special. Lush ripe sweet berries are followed by subtle nuances of spice and toasted oak.
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.
