Winemaker 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.

Critical Acclaim

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Barrel fermented with wild yeast in French oak, 34% new, and matured for 10 months in oak, the 2010 Chardonnay offers a youthfully closed nose of fresh peaches and cream, cedar, lightly toasted bread and apple tart. Medium bodied and packed with nervy flavor intensity in the mouth, it has crisp acidity and a silken texture, finishing long with lingering honeyed toast notes. Still very tight, consider drinking it 2012 to 2016+.
W&S 90
Wine & Spirits
A quiet wine built on flavors of apple, honey and almonds, this is sweet even as it finishes clean. It has an Indian Ocean freshness and impressive persistence of flavor for the price. Chill it for grilled abalone.

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.
