Symphony Hill Gewurztraminer 2014

Owner Ewen Macpherson says this wine has jazz hands. I know what he means. Well, sort of. There's something very special and alluring about it. So much so, it was recently awarded the Best Other Single Varietal Wine at the Royal Melbourne Wine Awards.

Although Symphony Hill is a winery part Queensland's Granite Belt region, winemaker Mike Hayes sources the fruit from the New England region just down the road.

Pretty and attractive aromas of rose petals and Turkish delight run riot filling the glass. These move seamlessly to delicious fruit highlighted by lychee and some lavender. A gentle flutter of spice lingers brilliantly on a long and soft finish.

It's just one of those wines you shake your head at in amazement. I did a bit of head shaking, and some buying. A couple made their way home.

Outstanding.
