The Fire Heath Chardonnay is named for an indigenous fynbos plant found in the Walker Bay region. The wine is driven by a citrusy core of lime and tangerine, with loads of fresh acidity and a bright mineral backbone. Luscious pear flavors and floral top notes round it out, with delicate almond and spice notes coming through on the finish.

This has a creamy feel, with alluring creamed peach, yellow apple and green almond notes sailing through. Features just enough tension from the well-embedded acidity to keep moving along. Reveals a light hazelnut backdrop throughout. Delicious. Drink now through 2019. 150 cases imported.

The 2015 Fire Heath Chardonnay comes from the Walker Bay, the vines planted in 2005/2006 on limestone soils that used to cultivate Proteas. It has an attractive bouquet with scents of lemon curd and nectarine, a touch of yellow flowers emerging with time. The palate is well balanced with orange zest and citrus peel notes, fine salinity with a light marine/peaty influence with hints of lime and Granny Smith apples on the long finish.

This is a solid and well-made Chardonnay, with notes of yellow apple, melon and fresh hay on the nose and mouth. There's a subtle astringency to the fruit flavors on the medium-weight palate, with bright acidity that carries through to the clean and refreshing finish. Drink now-2019.
