Winemaker Notes

Bright pale deep straw. Fine perfumes of floral talc, pink grapefruit, lime blossom and lemongrass tea mingle with exciting savory limestone and oyster shell complexities reminiscent of the coast. Intriguing notes of classic flint, struck match, candlewax and fresh white leather round out this captivating aroma. A strong central line of acidity holds tension in this juicy body of fruit, supported by incredible phenolic powder. Nervy and taut, the pithy feel of flinty stone, lime and pink grapefruit continue to give breath to the long Heytesbury finish.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 97
Wine Enthusiast

One of the most renowned Chardonnays in Australia, the latest release is a knockout. A cool vintage allowed for gorgeous natural acidity and bright fruit to shine. Being the most cellarworthy of the Vasse Chards, Heytesbury is always structured and more oak driven when young. It opens with heady aromas of toasted nuts, flint, seashell, vanilla pod and a seaweed-like umami note amid melon and lemon curd. The palate is fabulously fresh with textural complexity, and lingering nut, saline and citrus notes on the lengthy finish.

RP 97
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Complex, smoky nose of hawthorn, grilled pineapple, dried lemon, ash, flint and cedar. Full-bodied, but refined, with tight, elegant layers. Phenolic. Excellent backbone of acidity to balance the concentrated fruit and spice. Vivid and long. Drink or hold. 

JS 97
James Suckling

Complex, smoky nose of hawthorn, grilled pineapple, dried lemon, ash, flint and cedar. Full-bodied, but refined, with tight, elegant layers. Phenolic. Excellent backbone of acidity to balance the concentrated fruit and spice. Vivid and long. Drink or hold.

WS 93
Wine Spectator

Distinctive, striking an appealing balance between a core of fresh citrus flavors of pear, lime and Meyer lemon and a rich, toasty angle with nutmeg and hazelnut. There's complexity and harmony on the long, expressive finish, where a note of rooibos tea lingers.

W&S 93
Wine & Spirits

This is Gingin-clone chardonnay from the estate’s most distinctive parcels in what turned out to be a long, cool season in Margaret River. It fermented on its own yeasts and all the barrels completed malolactic conversion; that, combined with the impact of 61 percent new oak barrels, lends the wine an initial scent of caramel and butterscotch. Then notes of green pear and lime zest come up, deepening to white peach, lasting light, long and fragrant. Finely integrated, round and cool, this is a wine to cellar, or to decant for veal saltimbocca.

Home to some of Australia’s most elegant and long-lived red and white wines, Margaret River is situated in the farthest reaches of Western Australia. Relatively warm and dry, the region is cooled by breezes from the Indian Ocean. Margaret River takes some inspiration from Bordeaux, producing top-quality Cabernet Sauvignons and Bordeaux Blends with firm structure, mouthwatering acidity, balanced alcohol and notes of herbs and spice. For white wines, refreshing blends of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon as well as complex, age-worthy Chardonnays are regional specialties.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
