Top Aussie White

Fighting Gully Road Aquila Chardonnay Viognier Petit Manseng, Beechworth 2012 $26

An interest-packed dry white blend that seeks to do more with chardonnay, and succeeds. Lightly spiced peach/stone-fruit aromas, lightly nutty but not overtly oaky, and superbly soft and balanced in the mouth. Medium bodied and with a point of difference. Drink now. 12.5 per cent alcohol. 91/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: grilled chicken with lemon juice

Stockist: Best Cellars
