About
It’s pretty clear by now that Dappled is an out-and-out star producer. One of the very best. The value is extraordinary but quality is the main take-home.

About the Wine

This has to be one of the most surprising and indeed remarkable white wines we've tried in recent times.

Upon crowning Dappled s his Best New Winery in his 2018 Wine Companion, James Halliday labelled owner/winemaker Shaun Crinion as one of those winemakers who "come around once in the metaphorical blue moon."  Shaun does things his own way, no more so than with this stunning Gewurztraminer.

Gewurz can often be simple in its overt musky, fruity character, but coming from the ultra cool Macedon Ranges this has the acidity many Gewurz lack, with time on skims and the addition of 5% Pinot Noir adding a lovely pinky/orange colour and oodles of texture.

A sit-you-back-in-your-chair white/pink/amber wine from an extremely impressive producer.  Extremely limited.

About Dappled Wines

Dappled is a producer to get on early.  Owner/winemaker Shaun Crinion has a mountain of winemaking experience from round the globe, culminating in recent years with the establishment of this, his own label.  Shaun's focus is in expressing the regionality of the Yarra Valley through simply gorgeous Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, sourced from a range of Upper and Lower Yarra vineyards.

Through his vineyard connections, brilliantly astute winemaking and a desire to keep his wines approachable to all, the value on offer in the Dappled range is second to none.  Throw in what may be the best Gewurztraminer in Australia, and some of the most beautiful packaging you're likely to see, and Dappled is the complete package.

James Halliday named Dappled as his Best New Winery in his 2018 Wine Companion and it's not hard to see why.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

This is such a fascinating wine.  Pinky/orange in colour, the nose is wildly aromatic with intense aromas of Turkish delight, grapefruit, musk and spice.  The palate is at once energetic, racy, creamy and chewy, with waves of citrus and tropical fruits and a riot of spice.  Keeps you coming back for more and more. What a wine
