Well, it looks like I was right. I picked up the 2006 versions of Brown Brothers Dry Muscat and Hardy’s Riesling Gewurztraminer at the weekend. These follow hot on the heels on the 2006 Sauvignon Blanc’s (like the awesome Highfield). In fact I’ve got some more excellent New Zealand SB’s turning up soon.
The Brown Brothers Dry Muscat 2006 was much fresher and sharper than the 2005. I expect it to lose some of that crispness over the coming months and turn even more fruity. Doubt it will last that long in my “cellar” though!
One thing I noticed on these new wines was on the back label. What is this new fashion of having removable tags on the back? Loyalty points? Can anyone fill me in?
Post a comment or email us if you know what these are for. Thanks!
Edit: Of course! It just came to me over a glass of wine. The labels are there for you to take to the supermarket so you know what to buy next time! Nice idea.
