Monsoon Valley Red

Winemaker's Notes:

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. A classic Thai blend of the local indigenous grape, Pokdum, and the great classic, Shiraz. These two grapes come together in perfect harmony in a soft textured, red berry fruit driven wine, outstanding with any spicy Asian dish. Andrew Catchpole from the Daily Telegraph writes: "The Monsoon Valley Red has a perfumed fruitness that seems to work perfectly with Spicy Thai foods" Vintage: 2008 Grapes: Pokdum and Shiraz Palate: Soft, fruit driven red berry fruits Alc: 12.5%
