Cumulus Merlot Orange Climbing 2005
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.
Deep red colour. Fruity, vanilla nose. Raspberry, a bit of cherry, some vanilla on the palate. Not much tannin. I poured it through an aerator and I'm drinking it with a pasta in tomato sauce with hot Italian sausages. It stands up will to the spiciness of the sausage. Much better than I was expecting for the price!
