Vasse Felix Margaret River Chardonnay 2020


This is a superbly crafted Margaret River Chardonnay again showing the exceptional skills of Chief Winemaker Virginia Willcock. Bright mid straw in colour, it is elegant, refined and highly complex from the get go with powerful fruit well matched to high quality oak plus a deliciously savoury side thanks to wild yeast ferment with plenty of grape solids in the mix. Nectarine, general citrus and crushed cashew aromas are well matched with vanilla bean oak. There is a real juiciness and precision to the palate although without quite the raw power seen in the best vintages under this label. There is however still oodles of melon and citrus fruits to enjoy and a finish of good length making this another delicious Chardonnay release from Vasse Felix, one of Margaret River’s top producers for this variety.
