James Suckling (JS) : 92 Points (2020)
Very attractive peach and passion-fruit notes with fresh lime, too. The palate has a smooth, fleshy feel with succulent passion-fruit and lime flavors. Good depth and concentration, too.

Decanter (DCT) : 90 Points (2020)
Quite a grassy, citrussy style of Sauvignon Blanc, with more of the perky gooseberry and nettle side of the flavour spectrum than overt tropical fruit. There's sharp sherbet lemon acidity running throughout, turning more creamy on the finish. Perfect with a Friday fish supper.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 90 Points (2020)
There's an impressive sense of balance and substance on the midpalate of this wine, which offers classic Sauvignon flavors of gooseberry, passion fruit, pineapple and grapefruit, but the aromatic flamboyance is reined in; this is mid-volume, not boom-box Sauvignon. The fine, balanced acidity and dry finish make this a great “session” Sauvignon – i.e., you can have a third glass. Drinking window: 2020 - 2024.

Robert Parker (RP) : 90 Points (2020)
Marked by ebullient scents of passion fruit and cut herbs, the 2020 Sauvignon Blanc layers those atop a solid base of grapefruit citrus. It's medium-bodied, with a mouthfeel enriched by five months on the lees and a long, silky finish. It's a fine, elegant example of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc for drinking over the next couple of years.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 91 Points (2019)
This wine is a touch salty & flinty to start, which adds character to the notes of lemonline, gooseberry, pineapple rind, honeysuckle & green herbs wafting from the glass. A creamy yet chalky texture is woven with juicy fruit & prickly acidity, ending long & citrusy. Spicy Mexican or Thai cuisine has met its match.Editors' Choice

Wine Spectator (WS) : 90 Points (2019)
Lemon curd, Key lime and pear flavors are aromatic and intense, set on a smooth and juicy frame, with pretty details of lemongrass, candied ginger and nectarine. Lingering finish. Drink now.

Vasse Felix Filius Chardonnay 2021
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’.
