Filius Margaret River Chardonnay 2015

ESF
9.3

This was dark golden w/extroverted nose of tropical & orchard fruit, and massive wall of vanillin oak. Huge on palate, this probably started out big but w/age it took in monstrous dimensions. Lumbering layers of orange, apricot, coconut, lime, minerals & hint of salty salinity. Tropical too - this shows w/good material you can get some impressive longevity. — 4 days ago

Heytesbury Margaret River Chardonnay 2019

Delectable Wine
9.6

Shimmering straw. A hugely perfumed bouquet evokes fresh, mineral-accented citrus and orchard fruits, saffron, chamomile and fennel, and vanilla and sweet butter notes build with aeration. Shows superb clarity and mineral cut on the palate, offering concentrated pear nectar, Meyer lemon, hazelnut, honeysuckle and candied ginger flavors and a touch of smoky lees. Emphatically echoes the mineral and floral notes on the impressively long finish, which shows noteworthy precision and spicy cut. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, September 2022)

Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

See many previous notes on Delectable, as recently as 22 weeks ago. Getting to the end of a dozen originally bought. I might have one left. This is the 2nd best Cabernet blend from VF. Originally the premium Cuvée was Heytesbury, now called Tom Cullity. This is probably the best rated “2nd Cuvée” in Margaret River. M+ intensity, touch of menthol, all the classic Cabernet descriptors including capsicum (bell pepper). Very enjoyable from a good vintage. — 2 months ago
