3 + 3 Persian Wine Sampler
Persian Tradition - Shiraz 'PERSEPOLIS'
Monterey County 2010
''Deep red with purple hue, aromas of violets, wild berries and a pinch of pepper. The palate is lush and rich, ripe and fruit forward with red berries, plums, juicy black cherry flavours and a hint of oak that will leave with a mouthwatering finish.''
This Shiraz is a tribute to the old city of Persepolis that was built by King Darius near the city of Shiraz.
From Monterey County on the Central Coast in California this Shiraz is uniquely created to pair with the Persian cuisine.
Persian Tradition - Chardonnay 'ISFAHAN'
Santa Barbara County 2012
''Golden yellow in color, creamy vanilla, apricots and ripe pineapple on the nose. The palate is firm and fruit driven with an essence of tropical fruits and a touch of creaminess that intergrates wonderfully with delicate oak notes.''
Try this Chardonnay with an eggplant dish like 'kashke bademjan', a homemade stew like 'ghoreshte ghehmeh' or with grilled saffron chicken skewers.
