VASSE FELIX chardonnay 2022

Profile Stone Fruit
Region Margaret River
Body Medium-full

Vasse Felix was established in 1967 and is the region's founding wine Estate. Unrivalled experience as a vigneron in Margaret River 'wine paradise', with its pristine isolation, ancient lands and twin oceans has led Vasse Felix to adopt organic principles across its four vineyards (NASAA Organic Certified). This builds upon the Estate's reputation for minimal intervention and 'small batch' winemaking, as an intuitive and quality-led progression to achieve Vasse Felix founder Dr Tom Cullity's original aim, 'to make the best possible wine'. All wines are Estate grown, made and bottled. Renowned for their elegance, finesse and balance, these wines tell of the vintage as experienced in Vasse Felix's Premier Vineyards.

Tasting Notes

When to drink
Encourage cellaring for up to 5 years
On the nose
A subtle fragrance of fresh pineapple curd, crayon wax, cereal, bee pollen and chamomile.
On the palate
Immediately juicy upfront, the fleshy, just-ripe fruit carries lovely fresh acidity and mouth-watering juiciness. Hints of chamomile and salty, coastal herbs mingle with a waft of fresh lemon to linger on the fine-boned porcelain-like palate texture.
Product Notes
A warmer season with an early harvest resulted in beautiful ripeness with elegant fruit perfumes and perfect sugar levels. With high natural acidity present in most fruit parcels, malolactic fermentation was allowed to complete. The premier Chardonnay sections were a mix of 78% Gingin clone and 22% Bernard clones 95, 96 and 76. The majority of the fruit was from our Wilyabrup and Boodjidup vineyards, with a small portion from our Karridale vineyard.
