Wine of the Week AU

Pinelli Estate Family Reserve Chenin Blanc 2007, Swan Valley, AUD $35

With its deep, glowing buttercup-yellow hue, this is a great example of a bottle-aged Swan Valley chenin, an under-appreciated style of dry white. Buttered toast bouquet, mellow and complex but still exuding intense fruit aroma and flavour. The clean, refreshing finish leaves you wanting more. (Screwcap)
