Hospitality
October, 2009


Just in time for the summer party season comes Aja, a new wine blend designed to match Asian cuisine. Created by business partners David Mulham and Mark Silcocks, the idea for the blend came from the pair's shared passion for wine and Asian food and the recognition of the confusion about what wine works best with the different Asian cuisines. Aja white wine is made from Hunter Valley Verdelho and Semillon, together with Sauvignon Blanc from the Adelaide Hills. It has an upfront fruitiness which complements a wide variety of Asian flavours.

Aja is already on the menus of top Asian restaurants such as Longrain, Rambutan, Zafraan and Blue Ginger. The range also includes Aja Blush, a lower alcohol, lightly sparkling Moscato blush wine. Head to ajawines.com.aust collect the prize from our Oxford St office and show ID if asked.

Some dishes might be delicate and lightly flavoured ....

A TOUCH OF SPICE

Nestled under the sprawling region of South-East Asia,

DRINK ME
AJA
If you are heading for an Asian meal, the makers of
this drop (pronounced ''Asia") reckon they have a wine to match whatever you order. Their aim was to make
something "luscious and fruity up front, but with a crisp finish" to cleanse the palate between mouthfuls of often
wildly varying dishes. "They've done a great job, and this
low-acid wine has lots juicy flavour and crispness. S20.

Fizzy Occasion
February, 2010


Aja (pronounced Asia) Blush is a simple, slightly sweet,
Moscato-style wine designed specifically to match Asian
flavours. When the occasion calls for something other than beer (the natural accompaniment to spicy food) this vibrant pink fizz with rose, musk and Turkish delight aromas, and raspberry flavours may be just the thing.
RRP AU$20.
