Tomich I777 Icons of Woodside Pinot Noir 2017

Special Price $45.00 Regular Price $60.00
This is a complex yet fresh pinot offering cherries and red fruits along with truffle and mushroom. Fruit intensity and sweetness are both very good. Plenty of length here and it is definitely worth having with food. Not footy frank mind but something quality, like duck and shitake mushroom risotto with fresh peas and mint.

The Tomich family make excellent wine from their substantial plantings in the Adelaide Hills. They are pretty talented too. Randal invented the ‘vibrosoiler’ which allows better maintenance of topsoil while preparing land for vineyard planting, resulting in quicker, sustainable vine growth and a shortening of the time between planting and achieving commercial yields. Dad John is a specialist Doctor who also has a postgrad degree in winemaking and is studying to become a master of wine.

Considerably cooler than the surrounding plains, the hills are washed in rain during winter months, and the peaks wrapped in fog. It is considered a high rainfall region compared to other Australian regions, but outside of winter the climate is warm and dry. Night time temperatures are the feature - notably cooler than the day when the sun sets. Worth noting is how the average rainfall increases the higher you go, with Mount Lofty picking up 1400mm on the old splash-o-meter compared to 850mm just 10K down the road in Charleston. This range of moisture and altitudes results in a variety of soils, but in general are sand and clay loam over clay subsoils. ... Read Full Article

Pinot noir (French pronunciation: [pinoˈnwaʁ]) is a red wine grape variety of the species Vitis vinifera. The name may also refer to wines created predominantly from Pinot noir grapes. The name is derived from the French words for "pine" and "black" alluding to the varietals' tightly clustered dark purple pine cone-shaped bunches of fruit. Pinot noir grapes are grown around the world, mostly in the cooler regions, but the grape is chiefly associated with the Burgundy region of France. It is widely considered to produce some of the finest wines in the world, but is a difficult variety to cultivate and transform into wine. Despite this, Pinot ... Read Full Article

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.

A bit of shale and ironstone can be found, and the soil is acidic on average and rarely acidic.

The combination of climate and soil lends to superb cool-weather whites like Riesling (if you watch for mould), Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and crisp Chardonnays. Merlot, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon can also be found, with the grapes
