Soft and spicy

Topper’s Mountain Bricolage Blanc 2015, New England, AUD $30

This unusual and excellent wine is a blend of chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, gewürztraminer and petit manseng. With a pungently spicy gewürz-driven bouquet, it has an oily, round texture and is voluptuously soft, with stacks of flavour and character. The finish lasts long and the acidity keeps it tight and fresh. (Screwcap)
