Weekly Wine – Riesling Gewurztraminer

18 Mar

SONY DSCHardys Stamp Series Riesling Gewurztraminer
2013
Country
750ml
13% ABV
$9.90 (LCBO)

I wasn’t expecting much from this wine.
I was not expecting grimaces and loathing.
I was not expecting love and joy.
Australian wines have gone upmarket in recent years. They came in as cheap (inexpensive – affordable – accessible) wines several years ago. But now they are up there – costing as much as the “good stuff’” – well the more expensive stuff.
Australian wine is good, Always has been – as far as I know.
This Hardy’s Stamp series is interesting. I believe they used to be in the 12 to 15 dollar range. They seem to have come down in price to get that elusive market share. The quality is the same from what I can tell.
This white wine is a fair wine. Not too heavy but not light. Rather sweetish, but not too much that it makes ones teeth hurt.
It’s a “meh” wine.
OK for the price.
