The signature Chardonnay of Vasse Felix. It is made from a selection of premier Chardonnay parcels from Vasse Felix’s Vineyards in a modern Margaret River style with elegance, power and restraint.
The 2018 vintage experienced cooler than average conditions. Spring and early Summer delivered intermittent cool then moderate weeks before a run of below average temperatures in January and February. Late January rain led to a fear of disease, however a beautiful period of ripening followed with ample sunshine and strong daily sea breezes preserving vibrant fruit flavours and acidity. The white varieties ripened with ideal sugar levels and high malic acid content for the third year running, resulting in a desire to allow some natural malolactic ferment in Chardonnays.
Colour: Pale straw with a green tinge.
Nose: An open perfume of white peach, white flowers, croissants and sweet cashews mingles with complex notes of lemon zest, waxy crayons, wet steel and ocean rocks.
Palate: A succulent yet fine linear structure with a broad, elevated mouthfeel of white peach, lemon pith and cashews. A mouth-watering sweet and salty sensation leads to a lovely fresh acid finish. An array of complex flavours linger.
