"Always nails this style of blended white wine. It’s a 62/38 split of semillon and sauvignon blanc. Plenty of crunchy celery and racy fruit characters. The palate is tight and lively with a zesty fruit character. Best for drinking in the short term."
"Winemaker Virginia Willcock has pushed into exotic areas with this little beauty. It’s mostly savvy with about 11 per cent semillon. It was wild fermented in French oak foudres. It also has some time in puncheons and barriques and there’s quite a high percentage of new oak. I suspect Virginia has had a bit of fun mucking about with this. Has a delightful savoury, primary lemony combination, with a slightly nutty, creamy texture. Finishes with a dry savouriness. Lovely wine."
"This is a newer one from Vasse Felix as part of a major commitment to sparkling wine from Margaret River. It is sourced from the cool-climate fruit of Karridale to the south and is one of the most promising wines released in WA in the past 12 months."
