Yalumba Viognier Eden Valley 2009
Score: N/A Tasting Notes: After harvest the Viognier grapes were gently pressed and the juice handled with controlled oxidation. The wine was fermented with indigenous yeast in stainless steel. These grapes, and the indigenous yeast that have transformed them into wine, have created layers of flavour and richness. After ferment the wine was left on yeast lees for a few months to increase the complexity and creaminess of the wine and add richness to the palate. Bright yellow straw with green tinges, the 2009 Y Series Viognier has an eclectic mix of aromas, namely orange blossom, fresh ginger, camomile flowers and hazelnuts. The palate displays richness and texture from wild fermentation and lees aging with the flavours characterised by grapefruit pith, ginger and lemongrass. A clean, persistent finish, complemented by some exotic spices, this wine will reward if served with Thai-style dishes such as pad thai or pandan chicken.
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
