Under $10 white
Houghton White Classic, Australia 2014 $9
Formerly named Houghton White Burgundy, this has a distinguished history. It’s a clean, fresh, well-made dry white with restrained grassy herbal aromas which hint at semillon and/or sauvignon blanc in the blend. It’s light, fresh and fruity in a restrained fashion, finishing cleanly without overt sweetness. A good everyday quaff. (12.5 per cent alcohol). Aging: Now to two years.
