A rich pungent nose, full of butter and ripe yellow peach with a touch of oak. Full bodied with a creamy lees driven palate. Persistent attractive flavours of lemon meringue and stone fruits. Well balanced acidity producing a medium, satisfying finish. A delicious varietal sound wine delivering value for money.
Vasse Felix Filius Chardonnay 2020, Margaret River, WA
Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
