Heggies Chardonnay 2017
Pale green-gold in colour. Fresh and fragrant aromas of stone fruits, grapefruit pitch and citrus zest with subtle hints of roasted hazelnuts and spicy oak. The Heggies Vineyard consistently produces wines with distinct and lively minerality. Flavours of white fleshed nectarines, grapefruit and nougat are complemented by a fresh peach sorbet-like texture on the mid-palate and a long drive of fresh citrus acidity to finish.
Enjoy with pan seared crispy skin salmon and citrus hollandaise sauce or tofu scramble with grilled asparagus.
Heggies Vineyard is perched in the high country of Eden Valley where the combination of cool climate and high altitude provide the perfect conditions for producing some of Australia’s finest Chardonnay. The majority of the estate comprises of three favoured Burgundian clones that provide a range of flavour opportunities for Heggies Chardonnay.
Fruit for this wine is selected from the older blocks on the estate with a range of aspects. These blocks are characterised by their shallow topsoils which are strewn with quartz on well-drained slopes. The vines yield low crops, which consistently produce Chardonnay of outstanding flavour intensity. The combination of clones in this blend exhibits our extensive experience working with the variety in Eden Valley.
