Vasse Felix have always been well positioned to produce the finest Margaret River Chardonnay. Sultry maritime climes are ideal for the early ripening varietal. The grapes are smaller than normal, sugar ripeness is accelerated, natural acid levels are always fortuitously favourable to the bright expressions of fruit. Grapes are all harvested by hand, chilled and gently whole bunch pressed, followed by an unclarified, wild fermentation through the action of natural indigenous yeasts in fine French oak barriques, a course of malolactic, battonage and lees stirring derive texture, richness and complexity. Components are treated to nine months in oak before the final assemblage.
Pale lemon, greenish hues. Fruit and savoury elements from natural, barrel ferments entwine within intricate fragrances, light notes of pineapple skin, green apples and apricot, fresh lime and lemon glaze, granita biscuit, lightly toasted almond and clove oak spice. Succulent and juicy palate, fresh and vibrant with delicate fruit flavours, fresh pineapple and green apple, a hint of lemon cheesecake before a dry, lemon biscuit, citrus pith finish.
