Vasse Felix Chardonnay Margaret River 2011
Appearance: Brilliant pale lemon yellow with a green tinge. Nose: 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 éclairs, lemon butter and a hint of vanillin oak punctuate the nose. Palate: 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.
External Reviews for Vasse Felix Chardonnay Margaret River
A fresh, tangy white, showing hints of tangerine and quince around the pear flavors, lingering easily. Drink now.
The 2011 Chardonnay is scented of grapefruit fresh peaches and white blossoms with a hint of toastiness. Medium-bodied it offers a good concentration of expressive stone fruit flavors with just a touch of oak lingering with a long refreshingly crisp citrusy finish. Drink it now through 2016+. -Lisa Perrotti-Brown Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
Green-tinged straw. Aromas of pear skin, melon and musky lees, with a hint of iodine in the background. Spicy, penetrating orchard and citrus fruit flavors are complemented by notes of ginger and white pepper, with a late jolt of candied orange zest. Finishes dry, smoky and long, with lingering spiciness and impressive energy.
