Quintus 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Soil: Grown in old terraced decalcified vineyards with stony schistose and quartz acidic soil with scant organic matter.<br/><br/>Vinification Length: 20 days<br/><br/>Vinification Method: A blend of non crushed Syrah and Mourvèdre grapes are placed in a vat and allowed to ferment at a controlled temperature. This method draws out the finest qualities of the grape sin order to obtain a concentration of flavours and tannins. The quintessence of the juices held in the wole grapes is freed when the wine is pressed.<br/><br/>Vinification Temperature: 25°C<br/><br/>Malolactic: yes<br/><br/>Sugar Rate: 0-5 g/l

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

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.
