Tasting Notes

Ripe fruit flavours of kiwifruit, lemongrass and gooseberry bring sweetness through the core, complementing a beautiful dry finish.
Winemaker Notes
2020 Classic Dry White is comprised of organically grown fruit and fermented with organic or wild yeasts. This has added to heightened fruit expression with textural elements. All sourced from the Vasse Felix vineyards, which are undergoing organic conversion. Thanks to a fantastic growing season, all fruit was picked at optimal ripeness, with the harvest of this wine completed by the end of February.

Vintage Notes
2020

2020 was a stunning vintage featuring low yields with fantastic quality; characteristics that will define this vintage as ‘rare and fine’. Spring development was early followed by a warm start to summer and continuing into fine sunny, dry conditions throughout the summer months. This, combined with lower yields, brought an early start to harvest. Conditions were ideal early on with minimal bird pressure due to timely arrival of Marri Blossom and no disease pressure. Bird pressure increased following a rainfall event late February, resulting in the reds being netted. Conditions also cooled slightly, extending the red vintage, delivering ideal tannin ripening and fruit flavour preservation.

    2022 Halliday Wine Companion - Erin Larkin

    Rounded, textural, grassy and delicious. Bags of freshly picked snow peas, citrus blossom, coriander and gooseberry. Pretty as.

    The Real Review

    Light, bright straw-yellow colour, with a sweet orange juice aroma - mandarin, Paladac - as well as a passionfruit and kiwi-fruit note that comes through more strongly on the palate. The wine has a dab of sweetness in the centre, and finishes clean and firmly dry. Better next year as it's still a smidgin disjointed. A very attractive wine with fruit concentration.

  • Wine of the Week

    Joanna Simon

    A delicate, oily roundness and suppleness that gives substance to the vibrant lemongrass, lime-zest, spice, elderflower and gooseberry flavours.

    The Guardian

    A combo that you’ll find in sweet wines such as sauternes, and that’s gorgeous in this dry Aussie incarnation from Margaret River. Another one for salmon.
