Vasse Felix 2017 Filius Chardonnay
Vintage: 2017 ABV: 12.5%
Origin: Margaret River, Western Australia
Vasse Felix Chardonnay is typified by its bright, elegant fruit, subtle wild complexities and a tight acid structure, reflecting the vibrancy and purity of this variety in Margaret River. 'Filius' translates to 'son of' in Latin, reflecting the relationship between this wine and its premier 'father'.
Light notes of pineapple, grapefruit and crunchy nectarine purity provide a bright fruit base. French oak and time on yeast lees contribute delicious secondary layers of ginger, vanilla biscuit, almond meal and lemon curd.
Light and fine, in touch with delicate citrus flavour, a hint vanilla biscuit and a zesty polished acid tang. It delivers a spotless palate that evokes a mouth-watering, river stone dryness coupled to a fine savoury, silky texture.
