Note that this is a double-sized 1.5-litre format, equivalent to less than $8 for a standard bottle, making it a bargain. A true sum of its parts, it tastes either like a fat pinot grigio or a lean chardonnay – take your pick. Slightly silky, with lemon in the foreground and a whiff of smokiness in the back, it resolves with an attractively bitter finish. Pair it with light seafood or simple roast chicken.
