    Winemaker Notes
    A pure, elegant and vibrant style of Chardonnay, embracing the region's powerful fruit with complexity and restraint to express the environment, with the hallmarks of Vasse Felix's premier vineyards.

    Elevated honeysuckle, grapefruit and kaffir lime aromas mingle with a fresh sea-breezy quality to this nose that hints at a sense of place by the ocean. Lower tone signature Chardonnay notes of nougat, grilled nuts and shortbread biscuit bring depth and richness to an alluring bouquet.

    The mouth bursts with regional purity and a quartzy acidity that compliments the coiled citrus power and textural finesse of the wine. Judicious use of fine French oak lends hazelnut and wafer flavors plus extra length, assuring excellent ageing potential.

    96: Australian Wine Companion
    From Vasse Felix's premier vineyards focused on Wilyabrup, fermented and matured in French oak (42% new) for 9 months. The bouquet is still developing, but the palate guarantees the medium to long-term future of a chardonnay with exceptional length and intensity, pear, white peach and grapefruit combining to make light work of the oak. Restrained like a lion on a leash.

    94: James Suckling
    A vivid and bright chardonnay with cooked apple, lemon and mineral character. Hints of vanilla and cream. Full body, clean and lively. Screw cap.

    93: Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
    A substantial and an impressive effort, the 2015 Vasse Felix Chardonnay breaks out a beautiful combination of peach skin, spicy oak, and perky mineral it is aromas and flavors. The wine's excellent weight on the palate would pair superbly with a grilled white fish in a delicate cream sauce. (Tasted: July 11, 2017, San Francisco, CA USA)

    93: Wine & Spirits
    Vasse Felix farms chardonnay at three of its four vineyard sites in Margaret River, including the Home Vineyard in Wilyabrup, where Tom Cullity planted the region’s first vines in 1967. This 2015 has the woodsy scent of acacia blossoms and the cool feel of the Margaret River’s coastal forest. The fruit is tight until, with air, its lemon severity opens toward finesse, detailed floral notes and lasting tart citrus flavors. Pour it with grilled abalone or other fresh shellfish.

    92: Wine Spectator
    Intriguing, offering a fragrant mix of toast, saline and lemon curd flavors that are juicy and focused, with good intensity. Bracing acidity opens up the flavors on the finish, showing transparency and energy. Drink now through 2027
