Monsoon Valley Premium Colombard 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Monsoon Valley Wines are produced by Siam Winery, with the specific aim of producing a range of wines to complement the flavours of Thai cuisine. These wines come from Thailand's oldest wine region, 60km south-west of Bangkok, where traditional grape varieties such as Pok Dum and Malaga Blanc are grown. The Colombard grape used for this wine originates in South West France. In Thailand, however, it creates an elegant and perfumed wine very similar to Sauvignon Blanc. It offers delicate and citrus aromas with a touch of green apple. the palate is light bodied with crisp acidity and clean, pure lemon and grapefruit flavours, with a lovely, medium finish. This wine is made to accompany food, particularly classic Thai dishes.

The Colombard originally came from South West France and in Thailand it produces characteristics reminiscent of the Sauvignon Blanc in it being elegant and perfumed and deliciously light and citrus in style. These wines from the Siam Winery in Thailand are the perfect accompaniment for any Spicy, Thai or Indian Cuisine.Grapes: Colombard Area: Siam Winery Alc: 12% Palate: Light, Clean, crisp acidity.

The accepted common wisdom was that viticulture and viniculture can only take place 30 - 50 degrees North and South of the equator. Thai wines rewrite this wisdom with their "New Latitude" wines. There have infact been grapes grown here since 1685 when they were a gift from Louis XIV of France to King Narai of Siam. There are cool temperatures during the growing season and this permits the production of balanced and fruity, award winning wines. Moreover, the climate enables both a summer and a winter harvest of grapes. Monsoon valley wines continue to improve in quality vintage after vintage and are receiving great critical acclaim.
