Premier Chardonnay 2018
96 points, “This is a bit of rock ‘n’ roll that performs brilliantly in Vasse Felix’s Chardonnay hierarchy. Perfect balance of flavours from grapefruit, lemon pith and delicate leesy-nutty characters with plenty of flint and saline. It’s linear, long and pure, with a riff of acidity that keeps the band together.” – James Halliday’s Wine Companion
96 points, “Another stunning Chardonnay from Virginia Willcock. This is high-class stuff. Oatmeal and lemon curd on the nose, with traces of citrus. The palate is sublime. There is texture, yet it is held close and controlled through to a very long finish. This was initially tasted late in 2019 and after six months, the deep complex flavours started to be released.” – Ray Jordan’s Top 100 Whites in The West Australian
2018 was a cooler vintage, giving this wine stunning finesse. Matured in French oak for nine months, Vasse Felix’s Premier Chardonnay is modern Margaret River at its very best. Expect crunchy peach, croissant, roasted cashews, candle wax, lemon zest, blossom, grapefruit sorbet and salty beach pebbles. This is simply sensational at any time of year, but we’d love to serve it up at Christmas with all trimmings.
Overlooking the Wilyabrup Brook, Vasse Felix was established by the pioneering Dr Tom Cullity in 1967. This maritime paradise soon shot to fame, and Margaret River became one of the world’s great wine regions. So, raise a glass to Tom!
