Rosemount Estate Semillon Chardonnay
A trusted favourite on the shelves of the local bottle shop, an easy drinking mellow wine that has the consistency you would expect from a large winery such as Rosemount Estate.
Typical of many wines from Australia this blend of Semillon and Chardonnay is soft on the palate, with hints of stone fruit and melon. A light straw colour with a pleasant nose this wine compliments many food types maybe grilled fish, a chicken dish or an Asian noodle dish, or my personal favourite as an accompaniment to cheese and biscuits.
Priced around the £6 mark you can find cheaper bottles than this but they lack the consistency or the quality of this wine
I'm not a mathematical genius, but over the past decade I have dedicated my life to finding a formula for the perfect evening. This research has taken me to a number of continents, has involved X amount of partners and consisted of the consumption of an infinite amount of alcoholic beverages. I am proud to announce my findings first hand to you lucky dooyoo readers as detailed below: BEOWULF'S FIRST LAW OF PULLING: 1 man + 1 attractive girlfriend + 1 Indian Takeaway ( -£10 )+ 1 bottle of Rosemount Estate ( -£4.99 )+ 1 Video Rental ( -£3.50 ) = Fun + Frolics - Inhibitions. After many months of tinkering with the above formula I have deduced that the inclusion of a bottle of Rosemount Estate is vital. Without it, the fun and frolics part of the equation becomes almost non-existent. This soil in South Eastern Australia must be as fertile as a rabbit in Spring because not only does that region produce this beauty, but also my favourite white wine of all time - Hardy's Nottage Hill Chardonnay (£5.99 from Victoria Wine and well worth the extra couple of quid). The intense citrus fruit flavours you expect from a Semillon Chardonnay are nicely balanced with a mellow oaky aftertaste. The result is a nicely balanced white wine with a crisp finish on the palate. In short, a bottle of Rosemount Semillon Chardonnay is a perfect accompaniment to an amorous evening in with your loved one. And at less than a fiver a bottle it won't ruin the relationship with your bank manager either!
