A single varietal but not a Chardonnay, a Sauvignon or a Riesling, the theme for this months Wine Blogging Wednesday. Scouring the shelves of Chile and Argentina yielded nothing, a dirt cheap Grillo from Italy was an option or a Bical from Portugal but the latter had a reduced price and a long in the tooth vintage, so that was off the list. Alsace perhaps? Nah, something Aussie to accompany a simple roasted chicken with half a lemon shoved up its arse. Besides Rob's supposedly coming round to watch The Final Cut on DVD so need something a little fuller, richer and drinkable.

Wine Tasting Note: Fox Creek Verdelho, 2004, South Australia.
Brought from Oddbins for £7.99.
Creamy. Is that a little touch of oak? Certainly cream and spice on the palate and not lacking in slapping a wedge of zesty acidity around either. Rich in the Australian style and a suitable match for the chicken, but failed to ignite any passion. A minerally texture and a long lemon-led finish. Alcohol 13.5%.
Scribblings Rating - 86/100
