Our SELECTION: Pacifica White
THE REGION: This unique blend has been sourced from the best of the Paciﬁc Rim wine growing regions. Australia’s warm climate produces Semillon of outstanding character. The cooler climate of Chile makes a smooth and well-rounded Chardonnay, while the similar temperatures in New Zealand achieve an explosive, intense Sauvignon Blanc. The Viognier is sourced from the US Paciﬁc Northwest where the marine inﬂuences contribute to the perfect growing conditions for this grape.
THE WINE: Staying true to our last release of Paciﬁca White in 2010, this wine showcases bright fruit and excellent structure. The Viognier offers ﬂavours of peach and honeysuckle. The Semillon lends aromas of vanilla and butterscotch, while the Chilean Chardonnay adds more tropical fruit and apple-pear ﬂavours. Finally, the Sauvignon Blanc adds the noticeable acidity in addition to the essence of passion fruit and gooseberry.
THE STYLE: FULL-BODIED WHITE BODY: FULL OAK: NONE SWEETNESS: OFF-DRY ALCOHOL: 11.5%*
THE FOOD PAIRING: Try it with a spring Pad Thai with green garlic, asparagus and peas or spaghetti with prawns, chili peppers and garlic.
