Pale coloured rose full of strawberry fruit, made in a medium style
Launched in 2002, Monsoon Valley is owned by Siam Winery, one of the founders and innovators of the Thai wine industry. Monsoon Valley wines are made from perfectly ripened and carefully selected grapes at their Hua Hin Hills vineyard. The terrain of loamy-sand and slate and constant ocean breeze allow international grape varieties to thrive and produce aromatic, award-winning wines.
2014 was a dry and warm vintage resulting in fully ripened grapes with excellent flavour concentration and varietal typicity.
Vines which have been imported from Australia and France are planted in an ancient elephant coral where deep sandy loam soil and slate create balanced and aromatic wines, with the help of cooling ocean breezes.
Each variety was fermented separately in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks lasting for seven to 14 days. The wine was aged for a short while in stainless steel tanks, retaining the freshness and vibrant fruit flavours.
Light and crisp, with aromatic notes of red berries and tropical fruit flavours. Succulent sweetness on the palate with bright strawberries and a medium finish.
Delicious on its own or with fragrant Thai curry.
Colombard 45%, Chenin Blanc 30%, Malaga White 20%, Shiraz 5%
