A selection of the most unique and striking vineyard sections, recognised for its innovative winemaking, al dente ripeness and distinguishing ‘Heytesbury’ character. Their most unique small vineyard sections where the Gingin clone on specific aspect and soil interplay in such a way to ignite very special varietal and wild yeast influence. A slightly later harvest held back by late January rain reached a subtle and precisely balanced structure of alcohol and acid line with the most delicate of flavors held tightly, resulting in beautiful restraint and balance. Natural MLF was allowed to complete. Hand-harvested, whole-bunches were pressed and transferred direct to barrel as unclarified juice. Only natural yeasts from the vineyard fermented the wine and was nurtured in our cellar for 15 months, 9 of which were in oak with some lees stirring. 100% Gingin clone and true to Heytesbury perfume and structure. A savory, delicate and beautifully structured, complex wine in a cooler, slightly later harvest year. Pale straw with a green and golden tinge. Savoury, citrus and stone support the elegant, flinty note of the classic Heytesbury perfume. Delicate hints of coastal herb and green tea sit with a little soft cheese and candle wax. On the palate pure, fine satin polish of this vintage is special, showing serious precision of al dente ripeness. A typically powerful and tightly held acid line holds a soft, full core, showing amazing restraint with incredible balance and a lightly pithy finish.
