Here’s a new wine brand and label exclusively for Direct Cellars members. In case you’re puzzled about the name, it was created to recognize the two “wine guys” who work hard to bring you the finest examples of the world’s great varietals – Stephen Burch, and Jerry Greenfield.
It’s pronounced “guh-voorts-tra-meener” and it’s one of the most exciting varietals around. It originated in Germany, but the Californians have made it their own. You’ll love the abundant floral aromas followed by vibrant flavors of tangerine, lemon, and fresh orange juice. Sip carefully, and you may sense a bit of grapefruit.
The low acidity and floral notes make this a perfect accent to many types of Asian and Indian cuisine. Prepare the curry medium-spicy, add some oven roasted chickpeas and a touch of cilantro.
