Well, a bloody good thing happened today…….my nose is no longer blocked. The Bogeys are all gone!! I can finally smell, and taste our wine. I’ve given our Gee-WHIZZ the once over tonight and have given it the thumbs up. Gewurztraminer can be one of the trickiest grapes to grow let alone make. The beast regularily throws a wobbly in the vineyard. If it’s not cropping poorly, it will ripen unevenly, you wait for an increase in sugar and the acids will fall away. What you can have is a soapy, fat, bitter, hot, numb nut of a wine. Kinda like drinking pot-pourri soaked in rancid vegetable oil. This is everthing our Gee-WHIZZ isn’t.
She’s pretty, dainty, racey and light on her feet…….certainly no big Heifer-lump !!! A perfect match with any asian tucker or spicey food.
I thoroughly recommend her now through til’ 2015. So we had 1500 Bottles…..now 1499 remain…… any takers!!!
