Vasse Felix Chardonnay is typified by its bright, elegant fruit, subtle wild complexities and a tight acid structure, reflecting the vibrancy and purity of this variety in Margaret River. 'Filius' translates to 'son of' in Latin, reflecting the relationship between this wine and its premier 'father'.
The Vasse Felix estate includes four vineyards throughout the Margaret River wine region. The sites have been selected for their unique topography, micro-climates and natural drainage.
The best suited grape varieties have been matched to each vineyard, and specific rows and blocks have been planted to correspond with topography and soil type.
A 'hands off' philosophy is undertaken, working to the philosophy of achieving ‘fruit quality through plant health, and plant health through soil health’.
