White Ribbon semillon

This is a terrific white from Penmarawines (australia). It's a modest wine, but remarkable in 2 ways: 1) it's utterly dry, with major heft and glycerine and subdued but substantial fruit and 2) it's low-alcohol (11..5). I love drinking it, but it's also a great sauce wine--none of the herbal detours of vermouth, none of the grass of sauvignon blanc, none of the fruit salad of (california) chardonnay. Unfortunately, I encountered it at Trader Joe's, which means it's an introductory offering, never to be seen again except at substantially higher (than $4.99) prices.
