An off-dry rosé with smoky cranberry and strawberry fruit.
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.
2016 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.
The grapes were lightly crushed and the juice was settled before being cold fermented at 15 to 18°C in stainless steel tanks. The wine did not go through malolactic fermentation and was aged for a short time in stainless steel to preserve the freshness and fruity aromas. Made in an easy-drinking style.
A vibrant medium rosé with red berried fruits and wild strawberry flavours. Sumptuous acidity is balanced by a touch of fruity sweetness.
Serve with fresh seafood or simply delicious on its own.
