2023 FE Classic White


Vintage:  2023 – an excellent white wine vintage, typified by good yields and a dry, mild ripening period resulting in flavoursome, aromatic wines.

Varietals:  41% Sauvignon Blanc; 30% Chardonnay; 29% Semillon.

Appearance:  Pale straw with green tints.

Aroma:  Bright, vibrant aromatics of lemon blossom, jasmine flowers, green apple and white nectarine.

Palate:  A blend of varieties creating a balanced whole. The flesh, texture and mouthfeel of Chardonnay balances the citrus drive of Semillon and the herbal punch of Sauvignon Blanc. Stone-fruits, tropical fruits and citrus line. A flavoursome and textural mid-palate leads into a refreshing and mouth-watering finish.

Oak Detail:  A small portion of this wine was fermented in seasoned French oak to contribute some texture and mouthfeel. The majority of the blend however, was fermented cool in stainless steel tanks to ensure maximum retention of aromatics and fruit flavour.

Cellaring:  Designed for drinking now until 2026.

Food Pairing: Bouillabaisse.
