2019 Vasse Felix Heytesbury Chardonnay

 

We are excited to introduce the new release of a beautiful wine from Margaret River's oldest winery, Vasse Felix - the 2019 Heytesbury Chardonnay.  You can't help but say 'Wow' when tasting it - it is incredibly delicious nectar!  The Heytsbury has only been made for 21 years - however due to the exceptional quality it has already gained an iconic status.

'If the greatest wines of all prove their merit by virtue of rock-solid consistency from season to season, Heytesbury has attained the pinnacle of Australian Chardonnay'

Tyson Stelzer's Top Ten Australian Wines 2019

 

Although Margaret River is only a small region in far flung Western Australia that accounts for only 2% of Australia's wine production - it commands over 20% of the premium market and produces some of the most highly lauded wines in Australia. The very first vineyard in Margaret River, Vasse Felix was established in 1967 by regional pioneer Dr Tom Cullity, and he started winning gold medals from the first vintage onward.

Since its inaugural release in 2000, Heytesbury Chardonnay has forged a world-wide cult following, which has seen it become a Margaret River, Australian and New World benchmark Chardonnay that rivals the absolute best of Burgundy.  A selection from the most unique and striking vineyard plots, recognised for its innovative winemaking and distinguishing 'Heytesbury' character.

This is benchmark, world class, age worthy Chardonnay that represents outstanding value at just £36 per bottle.  In addition to 750ml, we have a very limited number of rare Magnums.

As always, first come, first served!

Magnums @ £73 each - Very Limited!

Best prices in the market!


Young, but not a hair out of place, despite the knife-edge tension. This is a remarkably taut, focused, yet nuanced Chardonnay, with lifted lime zest, twangy lemongrass, sencha tea, struck match and powder puff phenolics. A ripe, lemony backbone of acidity, ever so gently spun with savoury lees (a suggestion of mushroom), seamlessly absorbs the lightly toasted hazelnut oak (61% new). Delicate and intense; exceptionally refined. Drink 2021-2027.

97pt, Sarah Ahmed, Decanter
