Winemaker's Notes:

The 2010 Vasse Felix Chardonnay is a brilliant straw color. It has a fragrant, elevated perfume capturing citrus blossom and meadow flowers, fresh orange zest and hints of peach. It also shows some complex almond and vanilla aromas with subtle, yet enticing lightly toasted French oak wound delicately into the bouquet. It is a great expression of pristine and distinctly regional Margaret River Chardonnay.

The wine arrives vibrant and fresh on the palate, with generous white peach and citrus flavors dominating alongside lemon meringue and crushed biscuit nuances. A crisp and defined acid line draws fruit character through a long and refreshing finish, also serving to highlight the fine thread of spice that lingers on the palate. This release of Vasse Felix Chardonnay is true to form with vibrancy, delicacy and mouthwatering length.
