Margaret River is Western Australia's premier wine producing region, and it has built its reputation on outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon that rivals the best in the world. The proximity of the Indian Ocean has a moderating effect on the climate - a maritime effect that invites comparisons with Bordeaux. Shiraz, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon are also successfully grown here.

Vasse Felix 2019 Filius Chardonnay 750ml

$39.04

Such juicy and attractive, ripe stone fruit rules the nose with an edge of mineral and flint. The palate is mouthwateringly juicy and offers a wealth of peach, pear and mango flavor, wrapped up in a dry, crisp finish. Score: 92 points -- James...
