Brokenwood Mixed White (12pk)
Mixed White Dozen
3 x bottles of 2019 Semillon, Hunter Valley, NSW
Vibrant in colour – a touch more than usual due to the sunshine. Lovely florals and lemon grass aromas. Mouth filling flavours of pear and lemon pith balancing the zesty acid backbone. The aromas and fruit weight belie the 10.8% alcohol and reconfirms that the Hunter Valley produces fruit at optimal ripeness and much lower sugar levels.
3 x bottles of 2019 Cricket Pitch White, NSW
Lovely pale yellow colour with green tints. Citrus pith and florals on the nose rather than big tropical notes. Very appealing. Initial flavours of citrus and melon, light cool palate at 11.55 alcohol. Grapefruit, finger lime and a zesty acidity adds to the structure. A perfect summer drink paired with a wide range of food.
3 x bottles of 2018 Chardonnay, Beechworth, VIC
Perfect, pale green colour and lifted grapefruit aromas. The minimal oak sits nicely with the fine, juicy citrus flavours on the palate accompanied by subtle bran meal. The driving force of this wine is the acidity – long and pure.
3 x bottles of Forest Edge Sauvignon Blanc, Orange, NSW
Pale green tints with just a bit more yellow background than usual. Herbaceous and gooseberry notes carry to the palate at a slightly higher alcohol of 13%, with more rockmelon and tropical citrus. Lovely mouth feel and length from the juicy acidity. Excellent drinking as the weather warms up to close out this decade.
