Three white wines selected especially for festive feasting.
2017 Domaine de la Pepière Muscadet Sèvre et Maine, Loire Valley, France
Student Chablis: briny and tangy fruit, with acid drive and freshness – for a fraction of the price. Winemaker Marc Ollivier is one of the Loire Valley’s great vignerons, and this melon de Bourgogne is one of his most consistent offerings. $32
2017 Meadowbank Chardonnay, Derwent Valley, Tasmania
A product of definition and drive (read: chiselled acidity through expressive fruit) without forgoing nuance. Pithy lemon tones build towards fleshy nectarine and peach and quality oak spice – modern Aussie Chardonnay at its best. $48
2018 Bondar Fiano, McLaren Vale, South Australia
Fiano, from the McLaren Vale, crafted to show texture and zip; citrus pith and flesh and ripe stone fruits before a wash of saline acidity. Your go-to turkey wine. $30
