The signature Chardonnay of Vasse Felix, made from a selection of Vasse Felix’s premier plots of powerful Chardonnay. Made in the modern Margaret River style of elegance, power and restraint, with the wild complexity which distinguishes Vasse Felix Chardonnay. Bright pale straw with a gold tinge. A fragrant fruit perfume of white peach, yuzu and pear flan, gives way to creamy yeast lees and fragrant oak complexities which deliver almond meal, ginger nut biscuits and nougat nuances. Background notes of flint and ocean breeze reveal themselves with time. An incredible body characteristic of our Premier plots of fruit, complemented by a fresh line of acidity. This freshness is followed by an immediate broadening of the palate, harmonious and chalky, the wine is mouth coating but not heavy. Complex and complete, the fragrance lingers on the finish.

95 points : The Real Review - Stuart Knox
Pale straw-yellow hue. Lemon curd, almond meal and bakery items. Quite tight and focused. Good acidity drives a saline minerality whilst citrus fruit and roast nuts sit alongside. Good length and a lovely crisp savoury note to this finish. A delicious chardonnay.
Silver Medal : Decanter World Wine Awards 2021
Oaky, juicy wine with sweet baking spices, white peach and grapefruit peel character. Good length and a pleasing, saline freshness at the end.
96 Points : The West Australian - Ray Jordan
Another belter under this label. First thing, and I have said it often, it is way too cheap for a wine of this class. It’s a wonderful expression of this cool vintage, displaying more restraint and delicacy than the marvelous 2018. Wild yeast and some malolactic fermentation have contributed to the beautifully textured mouth feel. Minerally, it has a fine citrus edge that cuts through a palate of intensity and depth which explodes through to a very long finish.
