Stylish and savoury

Stargazer Tupelo Pinot Gris Riesling Gewürztraminer 2017, Tasmania, AUD $30

A stylish blend of Alsace varieties from the Tamar and Derwent Valleys, made by Samantha Connew. The shy but spicy fragrance includes savoury dried herb notes followed by a rich, intense, finely-structured and long-lasting palate. A tickle of sweetness gives it broad appeal, enhancing its ready drinkability. (Screwcap)
