Vasse Felix Heytesbury Chardonnay 2022
COLOUR - Bright pale straw with a slight golden hue.
NOSE - A beguiling perfume of elevated wattle honey, smoking wax, grilled white nectarine, white rose and ginger is rounded out by complex aromas of wet ocean limestone, lemon grass, Geraldton wax flowers and yeasty flat bread. Quite restrained in its youth, with more complexities to be unveiled over time.
PALATE - A bright yet creamy entry is supported by a beautifully taut line of acidity and incredible palate structure. An enticing pop of samphire complements the mineral, saline core, leading to a long, rich and dry finish with lingering hints of savoury beeswax.For over 50 years, Vasse Felix has been a pioneer in the emergence of Australia’s finest cool-climate wines. We are huge fans of this estate, and the rest of the wine world is rapidly catching on to this remarkable Margaret River gem.
Established in 1967, Vasse Felix is a historic estate in the context of Australia, and as one of the founding wineries of Margaret River it occupies the best vineyards in the region. Brilliantly managed by 2017’s ‘Female Winemaker of the Year’ Virginia Wilcock, her wines are progressively more extraordinary each passing vintage.
