Tony Love has written about a selection of white wines from varieties that flourish under the Australian sun including Viognier, Marsanne, Riesling and Chardonnay.
"You know it makes sense when you walk through a vineyard on a warm February day as vintage kicks in, the white grapes are full and ripening to perfection. Capturing the essence of late summer and the warmth of early autumn has been the calling card for many Australian whites. If you likes your whites with a ray of sunshine, these are good for further exploration."
Toolangi Emanai 2012 has been included in Tony's suggestions and we think it's a perfect drink for a hot summer's day.
"It is showing heaps of body and soul yet is still fresh and zingy."
Stylish and great with a chicken caesar salad.
