Consistently at the forefront of Australian chardonnay, attention to detail as important for the smallest detail as the largest. Texture is as important as flavour, although it can't always be possible to deconstruct the two. The elephant in this room is complexity, and the need to control it, for although deliberate, it may damage the very thing it was trying to create. James Halliday, Wine Companion

The 2017 Heytesbury Chardonnay ratchets up the intensity level, from the toasted hazelnut aromas to the white peach and ripe pineapple flavors. It's still only medium-bodied, but it seems rounder and more generous in the mouth, with a silky texture that lingers on the finish. It's a clear step up from the two other Chardonnays in the VF lineup, but it's also priced accordingly. Joe Czerwinki, Wine Advocate
