Always expect the unexpected, even when it comes to wine. For example, the weather has been so lovely and cooperative with all I have planned to do lately. Except for today.
I woke up early to the weather app telling me that a huge super cell with ping-pong ball-sized hail was headed my way. So, I jumped out of bed and scrambled to get my repaired car home before the storm. Everything went as expected, and as I got home I grabbed another cup of java, turned on the morning news and listened to the thunder which lasted most of the day. No hail, rain, twister… just thunder. A nice “June Gloom” day. Totally unexpected from what I had first thought. Enter the Optima Gewürztraminer.
