Soft and ripe, with modest pear and pineapple flavors, finishing with with a touch of spice. Great everyday quaff from one of Australiarsquo;s largest producers. Drink now.
Asian spices and piquant mustard-seed notes on the nose give way to mineral, ginger and herbal accents and ripe yellow fruit. Clean and medium-bodied, itrsquo;s a welcome alternative to Chardonnays of the cream-and-toast persuasion.
This recommendation is more of a reader reminder than breaking news, because the Bin 65 has been Australiarsquo;s hallmark value-priced white since 1985. But it is still a reliable, inexpensive choice as well as Australiarsquo;s most-exported white wine. Bouncy yellow fruit on the palate is accented by spicy, gingery notes that seem a little grown-up for a wine of this price. Fat, ripe nectarines and peaches, plus some nutmeg and cream, waft from the nose. the 2002 Bin 65 Cab (85 points, $8) is also a great buy.
