Like Anvil the band, Aussie chardies got a bit, well, monolithic a while back - like dodgy old Metal Dinosaurs, Bigger was always Better in Chardie-land.
Then we suddenly all stopped being Bridget Jones and Australia eventually caught back up.
This Chardonnay-Semillon blend is billed by Virgin Wines as a barbecue wine, but I think that sells it short.
It's better than that, a well-made and nuanced wine with subtle oaking that matches perfectly with autumnal foods such as pasta with creamy mushrooms, pork rilettes or roast chicken.
A versatile food wine, match with fish, cheese and white meats.
