"The 2020 Heytesbury Chardonnay is a sophisticated vintage with a fine, soft texture, balanced phenolics, delicate acidity, and a mineral, saline core. The beguiling perfume features restrained flinty aromas that entice curiosity as you explore its evolving characteristics in the glass.” - Chief Winemaker Virginia Willcock.
Heytesbury Chardonnay walks to the beat of its own drum, the culmination of Vasse Felix's most rare and distinct plots that possess that inimitable wild ‘Heytesbury’ character and ‘al dente’ tension. This is a release with power and richness that feels surprisingly finessed due to its complete physiological balance.
Glorious. So much scent, so pure through the palate, complex in general and then deliciously long. High class chardonnay for high class chardonnay lovers. Flint, grapefruit, apple and vanilla characters come topped with hay, fennel and custard powder. It’s a powerhouse wine but it’s also refreshing refined; there’s great purity through the palate and yet it still feels more than a little bit fancy.
