De Bortoli La Boheme Act III Pinot Gris & Friends, Yarra Valley 2012 $20

The friends in this Alsace-style blend are ‘other aromatic varieties’, probably riesling and gewürztraminer. The colour is pale onion-skin; the bouquet is sweetly fragrant and floral with some confectionery notes. There’s a dab of sweetness, and it’s full, rich and satisfying. Best young. 13 per cent alcohol. 88/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: lightly spiced dips
