What were the cornerstones of Australia's meteoric rise to fame? Well, in whites, it was the Chardy Semillon blend. The combination just turned out to be a knockout Down Under (the French would never mix their wine laws!). This pleasingly moreish blend is both cool and ripe, so it makes a lot of people happy. Slightly grassy, with a deeply citrus core, this zippy wine jumps out of the glass to meet any occasion you care to think of.
