Welcome to the July online wine club! Have you been afraid of the dense multi-syllabic name of Gurztraminer? Never fear! Come off piste with us and try something a little different this month – a beautifully light, mutli-layered Gerwurztraminer from the Victorian High Country. For our red we’re heading to McLaren Vale in South Australia for a 100% certified organic Cabernet Sauvignon that’s not as grunty as you might first expect.
If you’re new to this adventure and you want more information on how to “do” the online wine club, see our Wine Club page for all the juicy details.
Feel like doing this with friends? Why not hold your own wine tasting party!
Delatite Dead Mans Hill Gewurztraminer 2012
The freakishly named Gewurztraminer (pronounced guh-Verts-trah-Meen-er) is a sassy grape variety that teases and confounds. She’s all heady perfume and OTT lolly shop flavours, but then at the very first sip she swiftly demonstrates there’s nothing sweet and easy about her – instead offering up a dry and bouncy wine that dripping in high sophistication.
