75cl * 13.0% ABV * Margaret River, Western Australia
The Margaret River region - a few hours' south of Perth - grows less than 5% of Australia's grapes, but produces an overwhelming proportion of its best wine. Back in the day, this wine was marketed as 'White Burgundy', such is its similarity to Chardonnay from Beaune. Broad and textural, flavours of grapefruit and pear are supported by some subtle, classy French oak. Just the thing for roast chicken, rubbed with garlic butter and thyme.
