Henschke Tilly’s Vineyard Dry White Wine 2013, Australia

Country: Australia

Colour / Style: White

Alternative selection for: Episode 8

As recommended by: Joe Fattorini

I have a very good book on the Australian wine trade called ‘Why the French hate us’. And blends like this are part of the reason. Chardonnay (Burgundy) mixed with Sauvignon and Semillon (Bordeaux). Sacre Bleu! Yet in Australia it works, and has done for generations. Peach and nectarine Chardonnay, zippy grassiness from Sauvignon. I’d go pan-Asian with this, perhaps a Thai Green curry.
