Hither + Yon Muscat Blanc 2013 (McLaren Vale, SA)
12.5%, Screwcap, $20
This is a suitably fragrant and bright little number – a basketful of white peach and honey in that classic juicy, ‘this smells like grapes’ form. After that brightly aromatic nose, the palate looks a little broad and simple, finishing clean but without a real snap.
Still, the joy here is that fruit purity, which makes for a simple, pleasant and affable white, if just a tad indistinct beyond the nose.
