Translucent yellow. Meyer lemon, pear nectar, jasmine, vanilla and a hint of buttered toast on the intensely perfumed, mineral-accented nose. Juicy and energetic on the palate, offering sappy citrus and orchard fruit, floral, ginger and sweet butter flavors and a suggestion of salty minerality. Shows impressive energy and mineral bite on the chewy, penetrating finish, which features a repeating floral note. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, July 2021)

Solid chardy, but not in the style I like. Certainly could be more precise and less oakey, but it is quite accessible at the moment and well-balanced.

Previewing the Vasse Felix 17 Chardonnay. Such a delicious, well balanced, well priced Chardonnay. You can taste every bit of love put in by this beautiful family Sundowner team.

Tastes like Givry. More acidic than bitter though. Very nice!

Having tasted this again I have upped my rating. Citrus, white pear, pineapple and great acidity.

For the price, it’s fantastic. Not a lot of depth but enough on the palate. Nice fruit (citrus, apple, pear) with some floral. Has a nice depth to it, easy drinking and well made!
