Hither & Yon Petit Blanc 2017

Special Price $20.00 Regular Price $26.00
Light, shiny and briny with musk on the go too. There is lemon here too and a lovely floral perfume. Chill it hard and have with an Asian salad or laksa. This will stand up nicely to a bit of chilli fire.

The Leask family have been grape growers in the McLaren Vale since the 1970’s. In 1980 the family joined forces with Geoff Hardy to form Pertaringa Wines, a partnership which lasted until just a few years ago. These days, the Leasks are doing their own thing with the Hither and Yon brand. Utilising their own vines they craft gorgeous and well priced drops from the varieties you’d expect, along with Tannat, Nero D’Avola, Aglianico and Monastrell.

Less than 40km south of Adelaide, McLaren Vale is another one of South Australia's renowned Shiraz producers, accounting for roughly 50% of grapes crushed annually. The climate is markedly different from the Barossa, being much more Mediterranean with four clear seasons and higher rainfalls. McLaren Vale reds reflect this, showing deep complexity and power along with the ability to cellar for decades. While Shiraz grabs the most attention, chocolate-rich Cabernet Sauvignons, Chardonnays and Viogniers are worth sampling. The climate is influenced by ocean breezes coming in from the Gulf of St. Vincent to the west and the altitude of the Sellicks Hill ... Read Full Article

Vietnamese Poached Chicken Salad
Vietnamese Poached Chicken Salad

As the weather gets warmer, I find the appeal of fresh and crunchy vegetables with citrus flavours gets just that little bit higher. This dish is really easy, quite cheap to prepare if you shop at an asian grocer and you can adapt as you wish. Ingredients: For the poached chicken: 1 chicken breast 1 tin of coconut milk 1 small piece of fresh ginger or 1 tsp of minced ginger from a jar 1 kaffir lime leaf 1 tbspn soy 1 tsp fish sauce 1 birds eye chilli (optional) For the salad: A handful of roughly chopped coriander, mint, Vietnamese mint and bean sprouts Chopped spring onions 1/2 of one Chinese cabbage (wombok), finely chopped 1 red capsicum chopped in thin strips 1 red onion finely sliced Toasted onions (you can buy these in a plastic container from most asian grocers..) For thet dressing: (Equal parts lime juice, sugar and fish sauce) 2 tbspn lime juice 2 tbspn caster sugar/palm sugar 2 tbspn fish sauce *Chopped chilli, garlic,

Thai Marinated Chicken Sliders with Crunchy Asian Slaw and Lime Mayo
Thai Marinated Chicken Sliders with Crunchy Asian Slaw and Lime Mayo

Riesling can be elegant and refreshing, the tang of zesty lemon and lime goes well with Asian cuisine, seafood and sushi or sashimi. Aromatic and citrusy, it carries similar flavours to those used in this marinade and in the slaw dressing and mayo. There’s a mild sweetness in the riesling that works with the coconut but also a mineral edge that doesn’t fight the fish sauce.

The chicken part of this recipe comes from the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet 2 book and is a fabulously tasty and healthy meal with their suggested accompaniment of steamed bok choy. But if you want to carb it up a bit and take things to a whole ‘nother taste dimension, whack the chicken in a slider bun with some zesty lime mayo and a crunchy Asian slaw. This is fantastic picnic food or throw it all in bowls in the centre of a table for a summer session in the backyard. The zingy slaw and lime mayo are also excellent partners with pulled pork.

The climate is influenced by ocean breezes coming in from the Gulf of St. Vincent to the west and the altitude of the Sellicks Hill Range to the south. Soil type is varied, ranging from red-brown loam and sand to dark clay and the often-mentioned terra rosa. A misspell of the Italian phrase "terra rossa" (meaning "red soil"), this ruddy-red stuff is left behind when limestone breaks down, and any viticulturist will tell you it's great stuff to grow vines in due
