Rymill Coonawarra 2017 gt, $20
The gt here stands for Gewürztraminer, a variety that isn’t so common in Australia compared with other whites, but one which you shouldn’t be afraid to try – and not just with spicy Asian foods either, although it does go exceptionally well with Asian dishes. Think outside the square a bit and go crazy with all sorts of duck, chicken, pork or roast vegetable dishes, says Rymill winemaker Sandrine Gimon. Rymill has been taking this varietal seriously for more than 30 years, making it from a single vineyard that was planted back in 1985. It has all the classic aromas, flavours and textures that make Gewürztraminer so interesting and so seductive. Give it a go; I’m sure you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
