White Wine

Riesling

Riesling is typically a sweet wine however nowadays, most Rieslings are DRY!! Australia produces some lovely Rieslings, particularly from the Clare Valley (SA), Eden Valley (SA) or Mt Baker (WA). Rieslings can be served as apertifs or are quite versatile with food.

Moscato

The Moscato wine variety is part of the Italian Muscat family. Typically sweet, lightly fizzy and lower in alcohol than many other white wines. Muscat wines almost always have a pronounced sweet, floral aroma. A wine that's soft and spritzy, it is best enjoyed with desserts or soft chesses and is a perfect wine for Summer.

Sauvignon Blanc

The original Sauvignon Blanc is from the Loire region of France. New Zealand, particularly the Marlborough area of the South Island, produces many of the best Sauvignons sold in Australia. Most Sauvignons are best drunk young and fresh. Sauvignon Blanc is often blended with Semillon - this is a common practise in Margaret River to create the "classic dry white" style.


Pinot Grigio / Pinot Gris

Pinot Grigio / Gris is becoming vastly popular in Australia. The style varies from lightbodied and fairly straight forward (Pinot grigio) to rich and complex wines (Pinot gris) that are almost overwhelming in their voluptuousness. It is especially suitable in the cooler regions such as Adelaide Hills, the Yarra Valley and Tasmania.


Chardonnay

Chardonnay can produce some of the very best and some of the very worst wines made. Chardonnay is also used in producing Champagne and sparkling wine.

White Blends

The aim of blending is to make a whole wine that is greater than the sum of its parts. Some grape varieties share a great synergy like the blends of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc. Margaret River is home to the original Classic Dry White style which is created from white blends.
