Top Aussie White

Scorpo Pinot Gris, Mornington Peninsula 2012 $36

This takes pinot gris to a higher level, thanks in part to barrel fermentation. It’s rich and complex, oak-tinged and nutty, with spicy palate flavours of depth and character. Generous, ample but fine on the tongue; clean and dry to finish. Now to 2017. 13.5 per cent alcohol. 92/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: grilled spice-rubbed chicken

Stockists: Best Cellars; Vintage Cellars Ultimo
