Intro to Vasse Felix Heytesbury Chardonnay Margaret River –
Vasse Felix Heytesbury Chardonnay Margaret River Western Australia is the producer’s ‘flagship’ wine made from carefully selected top quality fruit. It is a delicious mouth-filling wine that shows much finesse and restraint in its lingering taste.
Full tasting note and wine making –
Heytesbury Chardonnay is made from the most striking parcels of Chardonnay from the vintage. 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. The wine spent 9 months in French oak of which 64% were new barrels imparting the toasty vanilla rich notes.
It has a stunning, fine and complex perfume that is classic for Heytesbury Chardonnay. Fragrant pink grapefruit, pineapple, cream aromas create a wild and exotic perfume. On the 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.
The producer –
Vasse Felix is Margaret River’s founding wine Estate and was established in 1967 by regional pioneer Dr Tom Cullity. Pristine isolation, ancient lands and twin oceans make Margaret River a wine paradise and one of the world’s greatest environments to grow ultra-premium Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. These varieties, alongside Shiraz and Semillon Sauvignon Blanc blends are the primary focus at Vasse Felix. All wines are estate-grown in Vasse Felix’s four Margaret River vineyards then estate-made and bottled within its state-of-the-art winemaking facility.
The region contributes just 3% to Australia’s total wine production, however commands over 20% of the premium market with wines that arguably lead the way as international benchmarks.
