Lindemans Sydney Cove Chardonnay 75c

Member Review by CambridgeWineBlogger:

Ripe, tropical Aussie Chardie with exotic fruits and some buttery, toasty oak and butterscotch - job done ! There's nothing not to like here - it's technically well-made and balanced; easy enough to quaff but with a bit of body and acidity to have with food such as fish or chicken. There's no great complexity or length, but it's juicy and gluggable - a safe party wine or reliable gift for someone you don't really know that well (which is how it ended up in the CWB household). After a Christmas of trying some rather good wines, sometime you just want something simple and predictable - the oenological equivalent of a fish-and-chip supper after some haute cuisine. The full list price of £5.99 from Tesco is a little toppy - you can get something much more interesting from a local wine merchant at this price range - but like so many branded, mass-market antipodean wines, price is just another promotional tool and it can be found more cheaply on special offer.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
