Food match Seared tuna; roast fish with preserved lemon.

A complex Mornington Peninsula chardonnay that gets better with air. Grapefruit, candied white peach, nutty oak and underlying meaty and sulphide richness on the nose introduce a smooth, integrated mouthful of good depth and weight, with a long, pithy, dry finish. (Screw cap; 13 per cent alcohol.)

Ageing? Drink over four years.
