WINE OF THE WEEK: 2006 Fifth Leg Chardonnay
One For Lunch: Another West Australian, quirky-named Fifth Leg that’s grown to No. 3 best-selling WA brand in the $14 - $19 price range in just 10 years, has now released its first-ever single-varietal wine – all its previous reds, whites and rosés have been blends.
Winemaker Stuart Pym was inspired to come up with the 2006 Fifth Leg Chardonnay after being impressed with the individuality and style of a parcel of fruit he was considering for inclusion in one of his white blends. The wine is an easy-drinking, lightly-oaked and fruit-forward style – at $18.99 team it up at this time of year with a hearty seafood bisque.
