Vasse Felix Chardonnay

I am still traveling around the North of Australia and good wines are difficult to come by. However, I was pleasantly surprised by this 2007 Vasse Felix Chardonnay.

The wine tastes of stone fruit, mainly pear and apple, and has a lot of complexity. The wine is medium bodied. It is crisp, but has a soft texture at the same time, as a result of partial wild yeast fermentation. The French oak provides some creaminess, but not over the top. The finish is elegant. 

An excellent drop from a winery which is sometimes overlooked.
