Sitting playing a board game, Carcassonne The Discovery, we had a Radcliffe’s Gewurztraminer d’Alsace, Cave de Turckheim 2004. The game was simple yet absorbing, the wine was just as well balanced.
Smelling of spices and honeysuckle and lychees and peaches, it was dry with enough acidity to balance out the explosion of spicy fruit which may otherwise have felt too sweet. Well chilled it was the perfect accompaniment to a slow sipping evening of game playing.
Priced at £9.99, it’s really £6.66 if you take Thresher’s up on their 3-4-2 offer, and it’s be silly not to as buying one bottle of wine at Threshers does mean you’re overcharged. £7 is well within the good value bracket for this wine.
