100 percent the product of Semillon grapes from Providence, pills picked just after veraisson (softening). Ageing Potential: Once opened will keep sealed in the refrigerator 6 months. Tasting Notes: Unlike most verjuices that are preserved with sulphur this one is preserved with grape spirit. This means it will keep in the fridge, visit this after it is opened for months. It is sweet on the palate as the sugar level at veraison is 12%. Pure fruit and acid are what Verjuice is all about. We also supply a recipe sheet to get you started. You will love this product!
Food Suggestions: Anything you can eat! The uses of verjuice are practically endless. Poach Atlantic salmon, salad dressings, substitute for white wine and white wine vinegar.
Yes, 2004 Pinot Noir is still well and truly alive. A recent visitor to the cellar door was pleasantly surprised to find that it was. But so are so many other Tasmanian Pinot Noir wines, albeit that the some colour is found in macro molecules at the bottom of the bottle! The wine is a blend of fruit, half from Providence and the other half from Frogmore Creek in the Coal River Valley, hence the “CRV”, which has nothing to do with Honda motor cars!
A great, light, drink now Pinot, showing lovely integrated fruit characters, mostly cherry. The acid is still apparent (that’s why its still alive!) and the finish is velvet smooth. Caution: once opened the wine should be consumed within the next few hours and not left until the next day.
It was never our intention to enter rosé market; however, the Pinot Noir in 2008 left us wondering what to do with it. Guy and I decided that we should press the grapes and then make a decision. That decision was that the Pinot Noir grapes were better made as a rosé We named th wine after Madame Annette Cecile Miguet our founder’s wife. Made by winemaker Guy Wagner. 13% alc/vol. Serve lightly chilled now or keep for the next few years. The wine is ageing very well, as we were told by the wine buyer for a major international airline. He told us to “lose a few bins for a few years”, which we did! The wine has a lovely strawberry and cream nose but finishing dry. A traditional European style of Rosé. Try it mid afternoon with some salmon or crayfish pate or antipasto. Lovely!
