Winemaker Notes

The 2008 Vasse Felix Chardonnay is pale straw in color with a bright green tinge. The aroma is fresh, with fragrant hints of lemon and lime, white peach and honeydew. Subtle, complex aromas of yeast character and apple cinnamon and clove are imparted partly from the French oak. A vibrant palate with fresh, crisp acidity hints at a more modern style of Australian Chardonnay. The flavors are clean, fresh and subtle; however a lovely underlying complexity exists with savory elements from the portion of natural ferment and new French oak. The wine finishes long and clean with hints of oak spice and fresh citrus and stone fruit.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Vasse Felix’s 2008 Chardonnay is a remarkable value. It was partially wild yeast fermented and 86% of the wine was aged in French oak, 42% new on its lees with batonnage. It delivers a bouquet of toast, biscotti, baked apple, and tropical notes. This is followed by an intensely flavored, elegant Chardonnay with superb balance and a lengthy, fruit-filled finish. It offers outrageous bang for the buck.

Vasse Felix  Winery Video

Established in 1967 by regional pioneer Dr Tom Cullity, Vasse Felix is Margaret River's founding wine estate. Pristine isolation, ancient lands and twin oceans make Margaret River a wine paradise and one of the world’s greatest environments to grow ultra-premium Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. These varieties, alongside Shiraz and Semillon Sauvignon Blanc blends are the primary focus at Vasse Felix. All wines are grown in Vasse Felix’s four Margaret River vineyards then vinified and bottled within the modern winery, situated at the Home Vineyard overlooking the Wilyabrup Brook. The Vasse Felix Cellar Door - also located at the Home Vineyard - is renowned. Featuring a tasting room, wine lounge, art gallery, wine museum and one of Australia's most acclaimed restaurants, visitors are welcomed from all around the world, eager for the ultimate Vasse Felix experience.

There are many things that make Vasse Felix the special place it is: the incredible environment and climate of Margaret River, their secure family ownership, their treasured heritage, and their priceless vineyards. But above all, it's the dedication of the entire team to continue Dr Cullity's original aim for Vasse Felix: "to make the best possible wine".

Home to some of Australia’s most elegant and long-lived red and white wines, Margaret River is situated in the farthest reaches of Western Australia. Relatively warm and dry, the region is cooled by breezes from the Indian Ocean. Margaret River takes some inspiration from Bordeaux, producing top-quality Cabernet Sauvignon with firm structure, mouthwatering acidity, balanced alcohol and notes of herbs and spice. Complex, age-worthy Chardonnays are another regional specialty. Also common here are refreshing blends of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, as well as earthy, aromatic Bordeaux Red Blends.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
