This wine is the perfect partner to any spicy curry - we enjoyed it last night with my favourite comfort food, Butter Chicken.  This is a typical Weisser Riesling in that the very first thing you get on the nose is a greasy, brake fluid, turpentine smell. Some might be put off but for me that's the sign that you have found yourself a goodie.  You will also get a bit of green melon coming through on the nose too. The wine on its own is racy, with a lingering palate and great texture. As soon as you pair it with something spicy, you have a completely different wine. Round, full bodied and fragrant- delicious. I would say that this is definitely a food wine! I bought mine from the farm for under a R100.
