TASTING NOTES
APPEARANCE Brilliant pale lemon hue.
NOSE Powerful and exotic savoury perfumes with cumquat,
baked lemon tart, orange blossom, chicken soup, wild mushroom,
lemon thyme and signature Heytesbury struck match.
PALATE A rich and vibrant palate with a fine, silky entrance
delivers generous waves of citrus and white stone fruit flavour.
Vanillan wafer biscuit and lemon ginger tea details then emerge
and persist providing a captivating dry finish to the wine.
WINEMAKER COMMENTS
Small batches were selected from the finest sections of our best
vineyards and clones. Each batch was very gently pressed and
the juice then transferred to barriques with the inclusion of some
solids to achieve more intense ferment characters and palate
weight. 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.
VINTAGE DESCRIPTION
Moderate spring temperatures accompanied by low solar
radiation and cool soil conditions contributed to slower vine
growth and increased disease pressure. Thankfully, a consistent
warm / dry summer ensured clean canopies and a timely start to
the white harvest. Weather remained warm, without extremes.
White varieties have lovely acidity and elegant, ripe fruit.

VARIETIES 100% Chardonnay
OAK 100% French oak, 9.5 months
(73% new, 27% 1-2 year old)
