Vasse Felix FILIUS Chardonnay 2019
Typified by its bright, elegant fruit, subtle wild complexities and a tight acid structure, this wine reflects the vibrancy and purity of the Margaret River. 'Filius' translates to 'son of' in Latin, reflecting the relationship between this wine and its premier 'father'.
Apple pie, delicate spice and milk arrowroot biscuits with perfectly ripe notes of lemon, peach and mango mingle with light pear and a hint of white pepper. What a bouquet! The mango-like texture on the palate delivers a tangy twist with a hint of pie crust. Its full-bodied, fresh and fruity.
