Tasting Notes
COLOUR Bright, pale straw. NOSE A delicate lifted perfume of lemon blossom, star fruit and green paw paw, with spring notes of Lily flower, fresh curry leaf and clover. PALATE A fresh crunchy palate with a soft fruit core. The lovely purity of texture is complemented by hints of guava, lemon blossom and persistent light curry leaf.
Winemaker Notes
The 2021 Classic Dry White is comprised of our most fragrant Margaret River Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc fruit. We ferment these parcels with organic and wild yeasts to add lovely textural elements, and use inert vessels during fermentation to preserve the purity and freshness of our fruit. A very low yielding vintage for Semillon has delivered a soft and full fruit core, which is complemented by the crunchy, fresh acidity of the Sauvignon Blanc blend.

Vintage Notes
2021

A year of peculiar weather challenges due to the La Niña season, where our commitment to organic viticulture was vital to the successful growth of quality, balanced fruit. A cool and wet spring prompted the need for an intense leaf plucking program to mitigate disease risk. Canopy management was a priority throughout February and March to combat unusually warm and moist conditions. A rainfall event in early February provided a timely drink for the red varietals, followed by warm weather which was ideal for the Chardonnay to achieve ripeness. A second rainfall incident in early March was followed by sunny and breezy conditions to dry off the fruit for healthy ripening. With judicious canopy management and a crop of naturally resilient grapes, we are pleased to say that fantastic quality fruit was ripened and harvested with little-to-no disease in our vineyards.

    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. V20

  • 90 Points

    Ray Jordan's Top 100 Whites

    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.
