Australian Gewurztraminer Verdelho Muscat Winexpert Limited Edition Wine Making Kit
MURRAY DARLING, AUSTRALIA
The Murray Darling is a vast region that sees the meeting of Australia’s two rivers, The Murray and The Darling near the city of Mildura. One of the most significant grape growing regions in Australia, the Murray Darling is over 350 kilometres (220 miles) wide and produces about 20% of Australia’s crush. The combination of heat, irrigation and fertile soil produces grapes which create soft, generously flavoured wines. South Australia’s Murray-Darling valley features long open plains and sloping hillsides. Only been planted in grapes since 1960, a clean slate allowed growers to plant only premium grape varieties, only in the best areas, and hot days, moderated by the ocean climate and long river valley means perfect ripening and glorious vintages.
Gewürztraminer originated in northern Italy under the name 'Termeno', but German vineyards yielded opulently aromatic grapes, tinged with rosy pink that the winemakers christened ‘gewurz’, which translates to ‘perfumed’, or aromatic. It has heady perfume and the aromatic fragrance of lichee, tropical fruit and rose petals. Muscat generally buds early and ripens late, requiring a warm climate and long growing season. Its berries range in colour from gold-green to very dark. Moderate to low in acidity it is extravagantly perfumed with grapey notes and dried fruits. Originally a grape used in sweet Portuguese dessert wines, Australian growers unlock Verdelho's potential, producing amazing tropical notes of pineapple, melon, guava, honeysuckle, grapefruit, mineral, floral, green apple and pear—it's like a dash of fruit salad in the glass. Together these grapes make a wine of lush opulence, bright, tangy fruit and a gloriously perfumed finish.
