Vasse Felix Heytesbury Chardonnay 2011
Bright straw-green; has the poised elegance that has become the hallmark of Vasse Felix Heytesbury Chardonnay, every component finely detailed and in balance with every other component; it is driven by its stone fruit in the first instance, but with oak and acidity also contributing to the texture and complexity of the wine.
The 2011 Heytesbury Chardonnay displays coy, youthfully mute aromas of white peach, orange blossom and cedar with suggestions of crushed stones, allspice, ground ginger and cashews. Tightly knit in the medium-bodied mouth, it is packed with taut citrus, peach, pear and mineral flavors offset by a very good acid line and gentle silkiness to the texture. The finish is long with the toast and nuts flavors coming through. It really needs another year at least in bottle and should drink best 2014 to 2020+. Rating: 93+
