Longview Queenie Pinot Grigio, Adelaide Hills 2015 $19.50
This spicy, floral, honeyed dry white wine has a fuller, richer palate than most grigios but no matter: it’s a delicious mouthful of wine. There’s a touch of viscosity in contrast with fresh acidity, which keeps it lively on the palate. (12.9 per cent alcohol; screw cap.)
