Winemaker Notes

Margaret River Chardonnay has developed a strong reputation and following throughout the world. Vasse Felix has developed a more modern style of Chardonnay, embracing the fruit, some solids in the juice and the natural yeast from the vineyard. We do not stimulate malo-lactic fermentation which in turn results in greater preservation of the natural acids from the vineyard. The fruit is picked earlier to also help preserve the natural acids and keep the alcohol lower, resulting in a tighter, more refreshing style of Chardonnay. Additional complexities are gained from barrel fermentation and lees' stirring which also helps to build texture.

The 2009 Vasse Felix Chardonnay is pale straw in colour with a bright green hue. It has complex, fragrant aromas with lovely biscuit characters and hints of lemon and subtle vanilla. The oak is beautifully integrated, sitting perfectly with the perfume of fine Margaret River Chardonnay. The wine arrives vibrant and fresh on the palate, with a beautiful silky texture and hints of citrus, stone fruit and biscuit stretching fine and long through the palate. The wine finishes with fresh acidity and subtle hints of spicy oak. The 2010 release is long, textured and a beautiful example of Margaret River Chardonnay. This release is ready to be enjoyed now and will continue to develop further complexity and richness if cellared carefully over the next 3 - 5 years.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 Chardonnay has moderately intense aromas of green guava, fresh pineapple, peach blossom and butterscotch with a subtle leesy/fresh baked bread character. Very crisp and tight-knit in the mouth this medium bodied wine has a great concentration of tropical fruit and cream flavors, silken texture and a long finish. Drink it from 2012 to 2016+.

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.
