JAMES SUCKLING 98 POINTS - "A dense and structured white with white peaches, honeysuckle, lemon tree, and hints lime. Full-bodied with a gorgeous center palate and intense and lively finish. So wild and energetic. Wonderful depth and focus. Drink or hold. Can age beautifully. Think where it will be. Screw cap."

WINE ADVOCATE 96+ POINTS - "The 2021 Heytesbury Chardonnay is as Heytesbury usually is—complex, firmly textured, coastal and briny, with layers of flesh and spice folded in on the palate. The wine ages tremendously, and the release cycle really does it no favors, as the wine seems to come into its own several years after release. It really is a shame about commercial reality! You get salted white peach, brine, saltbush, green apple skins, tea leaves, graphite/pencil box, tobacco leaf and cilantro. It's a sensational wine, and it will be even better in time. It was fermented wild, matured for nine months in French oak barriques (56% new, the balance one to three years old) and settled for six months in tank thereafter. Super wine. Piercing. 13% alcohol, sealed under screw cap."

Fine perfumes of floral talc, pink grapefruit, lime blossom and lemongrass tea mingle with exciting savoury 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.
