Vasse Felix Chardonnay "Heytesbury" Margaret River 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

TASTING NOTESAPPEARANCE Pale yellow straw.NOSE Exotic floral details, with white peach and grapefruit,interweaving struck match, nougat and a nutty/mealy, custard complexity.PALATE The palate is bursting with a luscious lemon freshness and stone fruit power that is sustained for incredible length. It builds in the mouth to reveal flavors of citrus tart and moreish sweet crust. The fine contribution of oak toast and acidity maintain a delicious, drying structure with a succulent core.

Ancient soils and cooling sea breezes from the Southern and Indian Oceans provide the Margaret River wine region with ideal viticultural conditions to craft wines of exceptional concentration and intensity whilst retaining elegance and finesse. Planted by Dr Tom Cullity in 1967, Vasse Felix was the first vineyard and winery to be established in the Margaret River region and is owned and operated by the Holmes a Court family. Situated in the sub-region of Willyabrup, visitors to Vasse Felix are welcomed by a unique underground cellar, a spectacular restaurant overlooking the original 1967 plantings and an exquisite art gallery, making Vasse Felix one of the great drawcards of the Margaret River Wine Region. The name ‘Vasse Felix’ was inspired by an early event in the district. Thomas Vasse was a French seaman who disappeared after his longboat overturned near the site of Busselton whilst exploring the treacherous South West Coastline of Western Australia. (An expedition of Captain Hamelin’s Naturaliste and Captain Baudin’s Geographe) Felix was Hamelin’s middle name, and ironically, is the Latin word for lucky. The Vasse Felix logo is a Peregrine Falcon. When Dr Tom Cullity’s first vines began to bear fruit, native birds or ‘silvereyes’ as they are commonly known, had a keen appetite for the sweet berries, so Dr Cullity trained a falcon to deter the pests. Although much time and effort went into this exercise, upon the falcon’s first free flight it soared into the sky and was never seen again. The Vasse Felix logo endures to this day. The Vasse Felix wines are crafted by Chief Winemaker Virginia Willcock, whose understanding and excitement for the region complement the Vasse Felix belief that wines should be unique, distinctive and expressive of their surroundings. The portfolio of Vasse Felix wines represents a definitive expression of variety and sense of place. Vasse Felix continues to be one of the most highly reviewed and visited wineries in Australia, treating wine and food lovers from around the globe with an exquisite restaurant, a welcoming cellar door and art gallery and an unforgettable Margaret River experience.

Pale straw in color. Fragrant lime, lemon and other citrus aromas dominate the nose slowly revealing hazelnut and raw cashew notes along with stone fruit and honeydew melon, all fairly focused with a tight shape on the bouquet.

Dieser Wein zeigt Fruchtdüften mit einem nussigen Unterton. Er bietet Reichhaltigkeit mit schönem Holz und robustem Körper. Ein geschmeidiger Chardonnay mit feiner, würziger Säure, Power und Eleganz.

Sehr exotische, packende Duftnote. Frische, jugendliche Frucht. Im Körper breit und ausgewogen. Feine, nicht überwiegende Holztöne, gute Säure, erfrischend.
