2020 Vasse Felix Heytesbury Chardonnay
This wine is defined by its savoury characteristics of struck match, wet stone, minerality and salinity, with body and texture and a strong acid line through the centre. 2020 was a moderately warm vintage and harvest began early resulting in low yields of high quality fruit. Heytesbury went through full malolactic fermentation and spent 10 months on lees in barrel with 62% new oak used - however this is in no way a defining feature. You could drink this now or cellar for 3-8 years and watch it develop over time.
