An enticing, exotic perfume of preserved lemon, rosemary, olives, star anise, green twigs and a hint of lavender. This fresh style shows a lovely full body and moreish fruit weight with hints of ripe lemon and green olive flesh. The crisp, dry finish lingers with notes of passion fruit pip and fennel.

"A super impressive take on the classic Margaret River blend that brings together the immaculate oak treatments overseen by Virginia Willcock in the Vasse Felix chardonnay range with lovely purity and brightness of fruit. Mid straw in colour, there is exceptional complexity for a wine at this price. Passionfruit, guava, lanolin and citrus notes with subtle nougat oak. Good intensity follows on a punchy palate driven by crisp acidity which is again nicely offset by a gentle oak touch. Good wine now and will add more layers with a couple more years of aging."

"Light straw-yellow colour. Pome fruit, smoke and bush honey aromatics. A fuller expression of this blend, with a weight of fruit and smoky savoury undertones. Good length and drive with acidity keeping it clean throughout and a phenolic fuzz drying the finish. Food would enhance it further."
2020 was a stunning vintage featuring low yields with fantastic quality; characteristics that will define this vintage as ‘rare and fine’. Spring development was early followed by a warm start to summer and continuing into fine sunny, dry conditions throughout the summer months. This, combined with lower yields, brought an early start to harvest. Conditions were ideal early on with minimal bird pressure due to timely arrival of Marri Blossom and no disease pressure. Bird pressure increased following a rainfall event late February, resulting in the reds being netted. Conditions also cooled slightly, extending the red vintage, delivering ideal tannin ripening and fruit flavour preservation.
