Country: South Africa Region: Robertson Varietal: Gewurztraminer Vintage: 2011 Body: full Alcohol: 12%
The winery had its humble beginnings in a charming missionary church on the outskirts of Robertson which is located outside Cape Town. The town of Robertson was named after Dr William Robertson, a Scottish minister who arrived in South Africa in 1822. We get pretty floral notes with raw honey and ripe apple on the nose. On the palate there's a nice round mouth feel with more ripe apple, nice sweetness & good acidity. This is an uncomplicated wine ideal with fresh fruit-based desserts and mild soft cheeses.
Country: Australia Region: Victoria Varietal: Riesling Vintage: 2013 Body: light, effervescent Alcohol: 9.5%
This wine is made with grapes grown in the higher elevations of Victoria, Australia. Frisk has just enough sweetness to be friendly, enough acidity to keep the sweetness in check and a fun lively little spritz (the "prickle" in Prickly Riesling). Perfect with spicy food, especially Thai, pungent cheese or lightly sweet desserts.
