Vasse Felix Filius Chardonnay 2018


Filius - the "son of" in Latin - this wine is the exhuberant child of the premier Vasse Felix Chardonnay. Mouth-watering, but fine!

Details

"A little cedar, cream and spice, but all about zingy citrus fruit and tingly acidity. It’s a bit chalky, some rockmelon-like flavours, and a zesty slightly green-edged finish of fair length."


 

Wine Front


 

"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'.


"A very comfortable mouthfeel with fleshy softness, fruit sweetness and full body tempered by a beautiful fresh acid crunch toward the finish. Almost a mango-like texture with a tangy twist, fused with slightly undercooked pie crust."
