Bargain Of The Week

Redbank The Long Paddock Chardonnay, Victoria 2012 $13

Long Paddock refers to the grazier’s habit of putting sheep on the roadsides when the paddocks were bare; it could also be a metaphor for infinite grape sources. This is a light, simple, probably unoaked, lean style of chardonnay with green-herb fruit, plus malt and honey notes from development. A decent quaffer at the (often discounted) price. Drink now. 14 per cent alcohol. 84/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: fish and chips
