Brookford Chardonnay Semillon 2017
Brilliant pale straw in colour with lifted fresh citrus melon fruits on the nose. Nice balance of soft peachy melon fruit, with clean mildly piquant astringency on the palate.
5 Jun 14: In the freshly minted 2014 edition of Matthew Jukes Top 100 Best Australian wines Brookford Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 receives a glowing review.... Matthew says.... "I taste everything that's thrown at me and sometimes (OK very rarely cheapies work and I feel compelled to tell the world. At this year's ADT I found the 2013 Brookford Chardonnay / Semillon and Brookford Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon and I have been counting down the days until the 3rd June 100 Best launch because every indie merchant, gastropub and wine bar should be listing these wines. They are both bright, cheery, accurate, layered, interesting, multi-faceted and gluggable. There is nothing remotely confected or mass-produced about them - so well done ABS (the UK agents and minds behind these two wines). You have done what so many others struggle to do and that is build value and integrity into delicious inexpensive Aussie wine.
