Mac Forbes Pinot Noir Yarra Valley Yarra Glen 2010
Yarra Glen is situated due north of Coldstream in the lower Yarra. Like Dixons, this vineyard has an easterly aspect providing protection from afternoon sunshine and heat. The vines are close-planted on unforgiving granite/clay loam soils often delivering quite a stony, minerally palate with savoury nuances. There is great intensity here, but not the kind brought on by concentration or saturation. The aromas are lifted, white strawberry flecked with floral notes and earthy undertones. In the palate it has a beautiful, delicate attack of bright red fruits and tannins that are delicate and fresh. It's a pretty and spicy Pinot that is already drinking very well.
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.
