2022 Classic Dry White

A classic Margaret River blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc. This popular, pure-fruit style has been made by Vasse Felix since 1987. It is zesty, fresh and crisp.


Tasting Notes
COLOUR Bright pale straw, with a green tinge. NOSE Delicate lifted perfume of lemon blossom, orange pith, bright Kaffir lime, jasmine, and Lily flowers. PALATE A soft, clean, and bright, fresh palate. Comfortable body and acid with orange zest and sweet straw flavours ending with a squeaky bright dry finish.
Winemaker Notes
Comprised of organically grown fruit and fermented with wild or organic yeasts. This has added to heightened fruit expression and textural elements. Another low yielding vintage for Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc has delivered a soft and full fruit core while still containing crunchy, fresh acidity.

Vintage Notes

A cool, winter-like spring saw vine growth delayed in development. Rainfall in October was significant. A dry and warm summer, with sustained warmth day and night through December, January and February, possibly influenced by another La Niña season, saw a rapid ripening period for all white varieties, with all vineyards harvested in little over a month. Fruit quality was excellent with surprising delicacy and elegance. A low yielding vintage, primarily due to spring conditions over the past two years. Warm and rapid veraison for reds in early February was ideal and saw the Cabernet’s desirable ripe flavours pronounce themselves quickly. Vine health remains fantastic, with fruit quality high and flavours concentrated.

    Peter Forrestal

    Margaret River’s first vineyard and winery continues to impress with its extensive range. Its Classic Dry White is a blend of semillon (75%) and sauvignon blanc (25%) and is more restrained and much drier than many other examples in the region. The flavours are more fresh garden herbs, granny smith.

    The Real Review - Huon Hooke

    Curry powder and slight SO2 on the nose; palate is very restrained and light, fading quickly to a short finish. Clean, dry and gently firm at the close.
