For five decades, Moondah Brook have lead the way with distinctive varietal wines offering some of the best value to come out of the west. Moondah Brook Classic Dry White is a wine which shows all the hallmarks and complexity of the enduring West Australian style. Chardonnay brings peach and melon flavours, balanced by the herbaceous, lemon and gooseberry notes of Sauvignon Blanc. A splendid food wine, the perfect match to seafood, fried whiting, blue swimmer crab and Asian stir fry recipes.
Diversity is the key, Moondah Brook retains fine vineyards and sources grapes from good sites throughout Western Australia, a wonderful endowment from which to craft a range of quality wines. The original Moondah Brook vineyard was established in 1968, ninety two hectares of hand chosen viticulture at Gingin, just north of Perth. A confluence of sea breezes in the afternoon and gully winds of an evening, assisted with the reduction in temperatures at ripening, allowing grapes to ripen fully and achieve wines of exemplary varietal character. Parcels that can best represent the classic Australian dry white style are vinified in controlled fermenters and bottled promptly after completion to preserve vitality and freshness.
Light straw with green hues. The bouquet shows refreshing aromas of stonefruits and melon, lemon notes, gooseberry and attractive oriental spice. A fully integrated palate of herbaceousness and orchard fruit flavours, five spice complexity and citrus notes, the mid palate is smooth and mouthfilling, before a gently cleansing finish. A match to scallops and oysters, salt pepper calamari or chicken caesar.
