GONG hey fat Choy!

To­day (Thurs­day) is the start of Chi­nese New Year 2015, the year of the Sheep – or as some say the Goat!

To cel­e­brate we are head­ing to the East Coast re­gion of New Zealand, to the Villa Maria win­ery. Here we will be tast­ing their Pri­vate Bin Gewurtz­traminer 2013. The look is clean and clear and a very pale gold in colour.

On the nose, clas­sic Al­sace aro­mas of rose pe­tals, ly­chee and spice.

In the mouth, this wine is clean and fresh.

Tongue zing­ing flavours of rich trop­i­cal fruits abound, and low acid­ity lev­els give this wine a rich, yet soft off-dry fin­ish. De­li­cious as an aper­i­tif or a per­fect part­ner to Asian cui­sine.

Alc. Vol. 13.5%. Price. £10.99. (Widely avail­able).

If you are cel­e­brat­ing, Gwor-nin Haow!
