Clover Hill Tasmanian Cuvee Non Vintage
The classic Clover Hill Tasmanian Cuvée is a blend of three grape varieties - 59% Chardonnay, 37% Pinot Noir and 4% Pinot Meunier. The wine underwent fermentation in its bottle, and was matured on lees for at least 24 months for giving it the intensity associated with wines by Clover Hill. This led to the creation of a medium bodied drink that is pale straw in colour. The attractive bouquet exudes rich aromas of honey and cashew, coupled with red apple and lime characters. This nose effortlessly shifts to the well balanced palate, containing delightful flavours of apple pie and citrus which combine with fresh natural acidity, to provide a clean finish. This beautiful sparkling white is a great match to caviar, fresh oysters and pan seared scallops.
Vietti Moscato dAsti Cascinetta
Pale sunshine yellow color and slight frizzante, this Moscato d'Asti has intense aromas of peaches, rose petals and ginger. On the palate, it is delicately sweet and sparkling with balanced acidity, good complexity and a finish of fresh apricots. The grapes are selected from small vineyards located in Castiglione Tinella. The vineyards are planted with 4,500 vines per hectare, which are almost 40 years old. Only the best Moscato grapes with extended maturation are used for the Cascinetta. The grapes are crushed, pressed and naturally clarified. Must is kept without sulfites in a cold storage, at low temperature in order to naturally prevent fermentation. Before the bottling, we add yeast and temperature is increased to 12°-14° C. Alcoholic fermentation occurs in stainless steel pressured tanks to preserve natural CO2 from the fermentation. The fermentation is stopped at 5% Alc. by reducing the temperature. There is no malolactic fermentation to preserve acidity, varietal fruit character and freshness. The history of the Vietti winery traces its roots back to the 19th Century. Only at the beginning of the 20th century, however, did the Vietti name become a winery offering its own wines in bottle. From 1919 Patriarch Mario Vietti began making the first Vietti wines, selling most of the production in Italy. His most significant achievement was to transform the family farm, engaged in many fields, into a grape-growing and wine-producing business. Then, in 1952, Alfredo Currado (Luciana Viettis husband) continued to produce high quality wines from their own vineyards and purchased grapes. The Vietti winery grew to become one of the top-level producers in Piemonte and was one of the first wineries to export its products to the USA market. Alfredo was one of the first to select and vinify grapes from single vineyards (such as Brunate, Rocche and Villero). This was a radical concept at the time, but today virtually every vintner making Barolo and Barbaresco wines offers single vineyard or cru-designated wines. Alfredo is also called the father of Arneis as in 1967 he invested a lot of time to rediscover and understand this nearly-lost variety. Today Arneis is the most famous white wine from Roero area, north of Barolo. Setting such a fine example with Arneis, even fellow vintners as far away those on the west coast of the United States now are cultivating and producing Arneis!
