Symphony Hill Gewurztraminer 2013

Seriously good fire fighting power here. Gorgeously aromatic and with plenty of fuel in the tank to match your Thai. Not only did it match the Thai well for me but the duck dish was also washed down beautifully.

Lychees, musk and rose water reign supreme. There's plenty of textural interest too which adds an extra dimension to the aromas on offer. An excellent length which just keeps ticking away rounds off an excellent wine.

Disclaimer: despite being a proud Queenslander, winemaker Mike Hayes has crossed the border and sourced the fruit for this wine from the New England region. If he keeps dishing up wines like this, such blemishes can be overlooked :)

Check the website for the comprehensive list of where the wine is poured or can be purchased. Do yourself a favour!
