BENCHMARK, VALUE, MARGARET RIVER CHARDONNAY.


We're not sure which name is more famous when it comes to top quality Chardonnay ... the region of Margaret River, or its founding winery Vasse Felix! What we can tell you is that they have certainly become the benchmark for quality Margaret River Chardonnay. And this Filius Chardonnay has become the benchmark for value in Margaret River...


Filius is latin for 'son of', as it's the next tier down on their family tree. Made with minimal intervention, reflecting the core fruit purity and vibrancy the region is renowned for. The good folk at Vasse Felix talk about this wine as more of an early drinking style, compared to their top Chardonnay, but that's because they make that wine to last for decades! For the rest of us, it's just as exciting - especially as we don't see a huge amount of Margaret River labels here, and they can be pretty pricey when we do!

In fact we'd call this wine offer damn near thrilling... Not only is it a Gourmet Traveller Magazine Best Buy, but at today's incredible price it means you can afford to drink quality Margaret River Chardonnay more often!


It's a powerful nose of golden peach and nectarine, cinnamon and nutmeg, creamy, toasty, vanilla notes cut with a peel of kaffir lime! On the palate it packs a punch with classic grapefruit and lemon flavours, an incredible texture, and vibrant acidity. Already showing some intriguing nutty, even mineral characters which will develop more and more with time. Drinking beautifully now, but the wow-factor will come with a few years of careful cellaring.

Usually $30 here and at the Winery, save yourself a whopping $10!


What could be better than drinking top-quality Margaret River Chardonnay? .... Drinking one at the everyday affordable price of just $19.99 But be quick, this offer is strictly only while stocks last!

Description

Vasse Felix is the founding wine estate of Margaret River, Western Australia and synonymous for quality and setting the benchmark for the region. Both the region of Margaret River and Vasse Felix are world renowned for their top-quality Chardonnays. The Filius (meaning ‘son of’) Chardonnay is estate grown, vinified, and bottled with minimal intervention. The purity of fruit shines in the glass, expressing all the beauty this region has to offer; a warm maritime climate where you can smell the salty, sea breeze of the nearby ocean on a summer’s afternoon.

Smells

subtle notes of golden peaches, nectarines, cinnamon, nutmeg with creamy, toasty, and vanilla notes underpinned by kaffir lime skin.

Tastes

racy, restrained, yet texturally exciting and packs a punch and energised by a vibrant acid line. A statement in the glass that makes you sit up and take note. Restrained use of new barrels lends itself to well-integrated toasty and nutty nuances that intrigue rather than dominate. A top-notch Chardonnay that will excite and introduce you to the world of Margaret River, if you don’t already know its virtues. Drinking well but will benefit from a few years in a temperature-controlled cellar. Enjoy with roasted white meats or crayfish and other ocean delights.
