Recommended food pairings: Serve well chilled, this light and fruity wine makes the perfect partner to a wide range of dishes. Try it with a spicy Chinese hot pot and enjoy how the sweetness of the wine eases the heat of chilli and spice. Cienna is also fantastic with crushed meringue and fresh mixed berries smothered in raspberry coulis.
Growing Conditions: Cienna is an exciting grape variety bred by the CSIRO Plant Industry by crossing Sumoll, a grape variety from Spain, with Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine is made from Cienna grapes grown at our Mystic Park vineyard in the Murray Valley of north-west Victoria.
Winemaking notes: The wine did not receive any oak treatment and was bottled soon after fermentation with an alcohol of 8.5%.
