Buy of the Week AU

Fighting Gully Road Aquila 2015, Beechworth, AUD $27

An eclectic mix of chardonnay, viognier and petit manseng, this has a White Burgundy-like note of smoky reduction overlying fragrant honey, wax and spice aromas. It’s full-bodied and rich, very complex, concluding with a clean, appetising finish with a pleasant hint of tannin grip. (Screwcap)
