Wine to try
2001 Brokenwood ILR Reserve Semillon, Hunter Valley, A$45
Chicken and leeks are both comfy partners with young semillon, but the prunes in this Scottish recipe require a mature wine that has the extra richness and complexity to stand up to their intense sweetness. There’s no better semillon for the job than the latest (semi) mature release from the Hunter Valley’s Brokenwood – named in honour of its longstanding winemaker, Iain Leslie Riggs. Toast, butter and hints of lime marmalade give this reserve semillon an impression of sweetness to match that of the leeks, while the chicken is in harmony with the extra richness that comes from the six years of bottle development.
