A beautiful chilled Gewurtztraminer

gewurtz - July 2012

And we headed out to dine in the garden, feasting on grilled fish fillets, South Indian Coconut curry sauce, asparagus, grilled Asian eggplant, okra, perfect rice, radish sprouts. Gewurtztraminer goes wonderfully with Indian spices. (Please see July garden feast)

closer view showing the delicate coriander flowers and leaves garnishing the curry. These were from the garden and the coriander flavour was intensely bright - much more thrilling than store-bought hothouse coriander leaf.

More uninvited guests - there were 5 in all but they moved around so much that it was impossible to get a shot with all of them together.

They're cute now, aren't they? But... they are wild animals. We decided to go inside for dessert.
