Buy Vasse Felix Chardonnay
Wine Advocate 90 points - The 2013 Chardonnay has a nose of honeydew, ripe nectarines and poached pears with a toasty undercurrent. Medium-bodied, it fills the palate with lively melon and peachy flavors with a suggestion of creaminess to the texture and a good long finish. Drink it now to 2018. (Aug 2014)

Vasse Felix Chardonnays take a modern Margaret River style. All three wines follow the same winemaking philosophy for which Vasse Felix has become renowned. Site influences contribute the distinguishing differences to each wine. The fruit is harvested, chilled and gently whole-bunch pressed. It is transferred to French oak barriques as unclarified juice for fermentation with only natural yeasts from the vineyard. Each parcel matures on lees in barrel for nine months with battonage. Post-maturation, the Chardonnay is graded to make three distinct wines from the vintage.
Producer
Vasse Felix was established in 1967 by pioneer Dr Thomas Cullity and is the founding wine estate of Margaret River. Vasse Felix is situated in the Wilyabrup sub-region of Margaret River, with vineyards also located at northern and southern sites of the wine appellation. The first vineyard blocks were planted in August, 1967. Margaret River experiences the unique combination of a Mediterranean climate, maritime influence and perfect soils for viticulture. Together, these conditions are ideal for growing Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. The estate is recognised as one of Australia’s drawcard winery destinations and includes a Cellar Door, Restaurant and Art Gallery.
