"A wine that has come to represent the pinnacle in Australian chardonnay in a modern, powerful and complex style, this oozes tension. The nose is flinty and intense, delivering citrus and fresh-cut white peach aromas plus struck match, grilled nuts and lemon curd. A palate of genuine intensity, the powerfully rich fruit with deep and dense texture is cut perfectly by piercing acidity; flavors run through citrus and stone fruits with stylish grilled nuts and gently spiced woody nuances. Rarely do you find a chardonnay that marries complexity and purity this well. Drink now."

"Spent 9.5 months in French oak (73% new, 27% 1-2yo). The track record of this great chardonnay label speaks for itself: it is all about breed and disciplined power; the grapes were picked at exactly the right moment, the fruit-oak balance calculated down to the finest imaginable degree, the length beyond any doubt or discussion."

The 2013 Heytesbury Chardonnay has a youthfully mute nose of lemon tart, kumquats and orange blossoms with hints of struck match, brioche, almonds and coriander seed. Medium-bodied, with plenty of silkiness to the texture and a pleasant touch of astringency, it gives complex layers of citrus fruits and savory flavors with accents of ginger and spice coming through in the long finish. Drink it 2015 to 2020+. Wine Advocate.August, 2014
