2010 Mount Mary Triolet

Huon Hooke
Variety Semillon sauvignon blanc
WINERY Mount Mary
RRP 95

Founder John Middleton used to describe this as Australia's greatest undiscovered wine. It's an outstanding white Bordeaux style: barrel-fermented sauvignon blanc, semillon and muscadelle. Buttercup yellow; wonderful buttery toast and roast hazelnut aromas, background vanilla and malt. Citrus and honey chime in on the palate. Great texture, too. 12.4 per cent alcohol.
Food: Roast chicken.
Stockist: United Cellars.
