Les Hauts de Smith 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.
Food Pairings for Les Hauts de Smith
When nature allows, we are able to produce very great wine, including our second wines. This 2005 red Hauts de Smith has a lovely, deep, bluish-red colour. The bouquet is expressive and concentrated with hints of the very ripe red and black fruit, graphite and spice. The wine is well-balanced and concentrated on the palate. It has plenty of tannin, but this is already totally integrated. This elegant, complete wine has a round, aromatic, and very long aftertaste of red and black fruit as well as spice and licorice. It will be a delight over the next 3-10 years.
Aged 14 months in French Oak.
