As Australian Chardonnay continues its re-emergence, Vasse Felix Heytesbury is firmly leading the charge with its complex, modern style that has seen the winemaking team take home a cabinet full of trophies and gold medals in recent years. 100% wild yeast fermented and matured in French oak for only nine months, there is a power and persistence that is unmistakable. A flavour cavalcade of matchstick, citrus, white peach and grapefruit alongside a subtle toasty, nutty aspect from the sublime oak regime. The finish of this remarkable example will leave you in no doubt to this wines pedigree and ageability. Sheer classic.
Matchstick, fine cinnamon and ginger oak, yeast, lime and nectarine. It's fine, dry and flinty but with surprising mango, lime and nectarine fruit richness. Acidity is fine too, mouthwatering, which sounds a whole lot more appealing than 'salivating'. Not as deep as some, but fine bones and clarity win the day. Length is excellent too. A stylish wine, not without some artifice, but has the substance to back it. And hey, it's Chardonnay after all.

Wild yeast fermented and matured in (French) oak for only nine months. There's no escaping the power of Margaret River chardonnay but this is also a wine of nuance and finesse. There's no umming and ahing about this wine. Its quality announces itself immediately. It's cheesy and matchsticky but ripped with citrussy, grapefruity, peachy fruit power. Toasty oak plays its part but the rocket of flavour exploding through the finish is the wine's defining characteristic. Extreme length. Complexity to burn. Upper echelon.
