Vasse Felix Heytesbury Chardonnay

Heytesbury Chardonnay 2009 was a game-changer in Margaret River, and here’s the proof it was no one hit wonder. At a refreshing 13% alcohol, Margaret River no longer needs ripe power to make an earth-shattering statement. A wine of finesse, complexity, grace and profound texture, promising great longevity. The levels of complexity and sheer detail here are transcendental: flint, struck match, funky lees, yet without for a moment deviating from great purity and energetic drive of grapefruit zest and crunchy pink lady apples. $42 at The Glass.
