55% Semillon. 39% Sauvignon Blanc. 6% Chardonnay. The Margaret River Classic Dry White is synonymous with the blending of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc, and showcases the intense fresh fruity flavours of these two varieties. The inclusion of Chardonnay in the wine helps give the blend mouth watering viscosity and generosity of flavour. The Classic Dry White is essentially an ‘unoaked’ wine, however since 2000 vintage a small portion of French oak fermented Semillon has been blended to further increase complexity and length of flavour. The wine is fresh and vibrant and well suited to the Mediterranean climate and food culture found in Australia.
A light, crisp wine pale straw in colour with bright green tinges. The nose is lifted, with pretty, vibrant passionfruit and citrus peel, a subtle rose water aroma and hints of a herbaceous grassy edge - classic Margaret River Semillon Sauvignon Blanc. The palate is refreshingly crisp, with upfront tropical fruit sweetness, flavours of lime and pineapple add to the lovely mid-palate weight balanced by a firm zesty acid backbone which lingers on the finish.
