The Pond Pinot Grigio Chardonnay, Northern Victoria 2014 $7
This well-made wine is a bargain. The colour is light, bright yellow; the aromas are straightforward, clean, fresh white peach to underripe nectarine. Clean and fresh throughout, with a tickle of sweetness. A simple but very quaffable wine and the price is the biggest surprise. I hope they’re paying their taxes! (Screw cap; 12.9 per cent alcohol.)
