Wine to try
2007 Brokenwood Semillon, Hunter Valley, A$22
When Iain Riggs made Brokenwood’s first semillon, way back in 1983, he created a style that was spicy, fresh and gently herbal, as opposed to the traditional, more understated Hunter styles which needed five or more years in the bottle to begin showing their best. Others have followed his lead, but none match the brightness and clarity of Riggsy’s yardstick. This is so food friendly: its citrus-fresh flavours make it a delightful companion to the sweetness of the leeks, the subtle vegetative flavours of the zucchini flowers and the richness of the custard. It’s more-ish, and the low alcohol (just 11 per cent) is a bonus when the second bottle is opened.
