The wine of the week in today’s SMH Good Living section is the 2010 Delatite Dead Man’s Hill Gewurtztraminer from Central Victoria.

Delatite gewurtztraminer has for years been one of Australia’s best; grown and made at the Ritchie family’s Mansfield vineyard, which recently took on the Vestey family as a business partner. It’s a  restrained style but delivers surprising richness as well as delicacy. The floral and spicy aromas have more detail than the pungent but simple, bath-soapy styles I so often see. Refined yet intense, juicy yet clean-finishing, with terrific line and length. The farewell is a lasting impression of richness, harmony and style. Drink now to 2016, 12 per cent alcohol. 93/100

Food: Salad composed of assorted leaves, grilled scallops, lychees and avocado. Or any grilled or fried fish with hollandaise or beurre blanc.
