Tingleup Vineyard, Great Southern, Western Australia
Tesco Finest Range £8.49
Western Australia really is making its mark over here. For a long time we hardly saw its wines and the excuse was ‘there isn’t enough to export’. New vineyards now mean good supplies of beautifully flavoured, fairly prices reds and, especially, whites. This is gentler than some Aussie Rieslings, but the flavours are tangy – lemon and lime zest, orange juice acidity and underripe white peach with slightly sweet stewed apple flesh.
