Sauvignon Blanc Semillon Margaret River Western Australia
One of the country's defining regional styles by one of our most splendid winemaking estates. Vasse Felix pioneered the vital blend of white varietal grapes and now the moniker Classic Dry White is synonymous with Margaret River. Vivacious lifted fruits drive the palate, classic tropical, passionfruit aromatics of Sauvignon Blanc combine with the grassy citrus herbal edge of Semillon, a refreshingly clean, zesty food friendly wine. Perfect with seafood and Asian poultry recipes, always a welcome guest around every table of fine fare.
Vasse Felix enjoys near perfect conditions for viticulture. The Mediterranean climate features mild, wet winters and warm, dry summers, ideal for the growth of high quality fruit. Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc flourish in these climes, developing distinctive regional characters not found anywhere else in Australia. Ripening conditions provide the varietal definition and aromatic qualities which make Margaret River so unique. Grapes are picked to modest levels of sugar baume, capturing fine aromas, crisp primary fruit flavours and good, clean acid structure. The juices are fermented under cool conditions with specially selected yeasts, completely unoaked to preserve the vitally crisp bouquet and flavours.
Bright pale straw, fresh green hue. Lifted citrus aromas are supported beautifully by nuances of passionfruit with hints of yellow rose, orange and lemon rind. The palate is zesty and vibrant, with fresh fruit sweetness adding a juicy succulence to the pure fruit characters. The crisp acidity provides great length to the wine, while flavours of freshly cut grass, citrus and passionfruit add further intensity.
