Vasse Felix, situated in Western Australia's Margaret River region, has emerged as a symbol of outstanding winemaking ever since its establishment in 1967. This highly regarded winery has been instrumental in elevating Margaret River to the status of one of Australia's top wine regions, leaving an indelible mark on its development and reputation. Vasse Felix got its name from its founder, Dr. Tom Cullity. An avid historian, Dr. Cullity named the vineyard Vasse Felix, which means 'lucky/happy' Vasse. He hoped that the vineyard would enjoy a happier fate than the original Vasse, a French sailor who sought refuge in the region in the late 18th century. The name Vasse Felix has since become synonymous with the winery's commitment to excellence and its role in shaping the Margaret River region into a premier wine destination. Vasse Felix wines embody the spirit, passion and unparalleled quality that have come to define the Margaret River region in Western Australia. With a legacy spanning over five decades, Vasse Felix stands as a beacon of winemaking excellence, consistently producing wines that showcase the unique terroir and character of the region. The Margaret River wine region in Australia is known for its exceptional wines and beautiful landscapes. With a maritime climate and diverse soils, it provides ideal conditions for grape cultivation. The region's commitment to small-scale, artisanal winemaking produces high-quality Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, and other varietals. 

At the heart of Vasse Felix's portfolio is their iconic Cabernet Sauvignon, a true testament to the winery's dedication to crafting world-class wines. Grown in the region's renowned gravelly soils, these Cabernet Sauvignon grapes develop exceptional complexity, depth and structure. The resulting wines display an elegant balance of ripe black fruits, refined tannins, and a lingering finish, making them a true delight for any wine lover. In addition to their stellar Cabernet Sauvignon, Vasse Felix is equally renowned for their expressive Chardonnay. Grown in the region's cool climate and ancient soils, these Chardonnay grapes produce wines of remarkable finesse and vibrancy. Vasse Felix's commitment to sustainable viticulture is evident in their vineyard practices. Embracing organic and biodynamic principles, the winery ensures that their vines are in harmony with the environment. This dedication to sustainability not only preserves the land for future generations but also enhances the purity and authenticity of their wines.

The Vasse Felix Premier Chardonnay 2022 beautifully exemplifies the winemaking excellence of the Margaret River region. This Chardonnay showcases a pale straw colour with delicate hints of green and golden hues. This Chardonnay offers a captivating bouquet with a lovely waxy, green tea candle note that gracefully mingles with subtle aromas of white peach, pear and green plum. Complex floral tones of jasmine and chamomile add an alluring touch, while hints of rock flint and vanilla bean provide further depth. With time in the bottle, additional savoury complexities are expected to develop, enhancing the aromatic profile. On the palate, this Chardonnay showcases a rich core framed by a delicate dry structure. The satin-like texture envelops the taste buds, revealing complex flavors of purified lemon, a hint of ginger, custard and delicate peach. The wine culminates in a lovely dry, chalky feel, leaving a lasting impression of elegance and finesse.

The Vasse Felix Premier Chardonnay 2022 undergoes fermentation in French oak barriques. Maturation takes place in French oak barriques, with 44% new oak and 56% 1-3 year old oak, including 26% from 1 year old Mercurey. The wine spends a total of 14 months in maturation, with 8 months in oak and 6 months blended in tank. This Chardonnay is vegan friendly, reflecting Vasse Felix's commitment to sustainable and inclusive winemaking practices. While this Chardonnay can be enjoyed now for its fresh and vibrant characteristics, it also has the potential to age gracefully for 5+ years. With time, the wine is expected to develop further complexity, offering a delightful experience of aged Chardonnay.
