“The 2014 Heytesbury Chardonnay starts off with scents of struck match and scorched bread, then delivers attractive, fleshy notes of Golden Delicious apples and ripe melons wrapped around a core of lively tangerine and lime. It’s medium to full-bodied, with a long, savory finish. Right in the heart of its drinking prime, it should be drunk up over the next couple of years.”
"Currant, clove, cinnamon, cola, and sun-baked earth form this attractive nose, which leads into a medium-bodied palate that has mineral and medicinal herb characters along with more cinnamon and currant. The tannins are tightly grained yet silky. A wintery Cab that could be cracked open now with food or cellared through 2027."
"This is so floral and fragrant with currant and blackberry character. Full to medium body, linear and edgy with a energy running through it. Firm and silky. Fine grain texture. Zingy finish. Dense. Wound ball of silk. Screw cap. Love now but will improve for decades."
"The 2014 Chardonnay Heytesbury explodes on the nose with ripe apricot, pineapple and honeydew notes plus suggestions of cashews, cedar, marmite and struck match. Medium-bodied and wonderfully elegant for this intensity of flavors, it has lively backbone and creamy texture, with a finish that goes on and on."
