Winemaker's Notes:

Brilliant pale lemon yellow with a green tinge. Elegant, fragrant notes of a Granny Smith apple, white peach and pineapple salad with a fresh squeeze of lemon juice over the top. Some complex doughy yeast, custard ├ęclairs, lemon butter and a hint of vanillin oak punctuate the nose. A vibrant entry with a juicy mid palate displaying apple, stone fruit and zesty lemon. Lovely tight acid structure drives the length with some cooked lemon skin and lemon barley flavours lingering.

About Vasse Felix:

Planted in 1967, Vasse Felix was the first vineyard to be established in the Margaret River wine region of Western Australia.

Family owned and operated by the Holmes a Court family, Vasse Felix is internationally recognized as a leading Margaret River winery, restaurant and cellar door and is found in the heart of Margaret River's famous sub-region, Willyabrup.

Long growing seasons, ancient soils and cooling sea breezes from the Southern and Indian Oceans provide the Vasse Felix vineyards with ideal viticultural conditions to craft consistent, elegant and complex wines with pronounced varietal character and aroma.
