Legend has it that as the 2nd son of a prosperous land owning family over a century ago, it was expected that Brookford's founder, Josiah Copeland should become a priest. However Josiah had other ideas and turned to vine rather than the cross. He planted vines in Murrumbidgee, named after the river that flows through the Riverina, New South Wales`s largest grape growing area. In the early part of the last century there was a large influx of Italian immigrants to Riverina, bringing vinicultural and viticultural skills from their homeland. Today Riverina has some of the most modern wineries in Australia employing the very latest techniques in winemaking. This particular white from Josiah's Brookford Estate is a juicy blend of Chardonnay and Semillon and works well with mild curries or flavoursome seafood dishes.
A pale golden in colour. Aromas of peach, apricot and citrus fruits. On the palate, ripe and elegant with further tropical fruit notes and an oily texture. The finish is lengthy and aromatic. Try with sesame grilled asparagus, goat's cheese salad or pan-fried scallops with a celeriac remoulade.
