Vasse Felix Heytesbury Chardonnay 750ml

Vintage: 2014

Tasting Notes: 

COLOUR: Pale straw with a green tinge.

NOSE: Stunning, fine and complex perfume, classic for Heytesbury Chardonnay. Fragrant pink grapefruit, baby pineapple, mushroom cream, lamb fat, fire crackers and salty ocean air. A wild and exotic perfume.

FOOD PAIRINGS: Our most unique small, fine sections of our best vineyards and clones. Each batch was very gently pressed and the juice then transferred directly to barriques with the inclusion of solids to achieve more of the unique vineyard character. Each batch was fermented wild with no yeast addition and was stirred throughout the nine months of maturation, allowing the yeast lees to impart further complexity, texture and palate weight to the wine. With bright, natural acidity a priority, no malolactic fermentation was encouraged.

PALATE: It has a crisp and well defined structure. With fruit juiciness, a wonderful acid line coming through and a fine structural edge, showing immense strength. The finish is dry with exotic perfumes remaining, hints of mushroom and sandalwood and bright primary citrus.
