If you are booking business class flights to travel on international routes on Australia’s flagship carrier Qantas Airways, then you are in for high spirits 30,000 feet above in the air!
Now get ready to be served Borrodell Vineyard’s 2013 Wine Makers Daughter Gewurztraminer on your international business class flights being operated by Qantas Airways. It may be noted that the premium wine is part of Australia’s highest wine cellar.
Qantas Airways recently announced its in-flight spring menu. Renowned Australian chef Neil Perry’s team of Qantas Rockpool Sommeliers has expertly selected and matched the newly unveiled spring menu to a selection of Australian wines for the first time.
Borry Gartrell, Owner of Borrodell Vineyard, said, “Gewurztraminer was an uncommon variety and it has really paid off handsomely for the winery. The 2009 vintage was also listed as one of the top six white wines in NSW by James Halliday in his 2010 wine companion guide.”
Qantas Airways is presently the third biggest wine buyer in Australia after the supermarket giants Coles and Woolworths. A spokesperson of Qantas Airways said that the in-flight spring menu would be showcasing the quality and diversity of Australian wine, and will be changed daily and offered to customers travelling on international business class flights until December 2015.
Borry Gartrell has been into wine making for over 20 years now. Providing details about Gewurztraminer he said that this had been the most unusual wine. It has been fondly remembered as a super sickly sweet wine in the 80s.
