Vasse Felix Chardonnay, 2014

Spectacular.  And dear.

 

A perfect straddling of the butterscotch with citrus acidity, no oomph of oak, just daubs of wood like a Doppler effect.  Gorgeous to sip, a most lovely pair with halibut, and very hard not to swill the bottle.  I could drink it by the vat if I could afford it.  Not easy to source in BC but for those with the budget most worthwhile. Yet more magic from Margaret River.

 

Price: A whopping $37 before taxes at Everything Wine.

 

Market Liquidity: Spectacular.  And dear.
