Heggies Reserve chardonnay

Pale gold with slight green-gold tints. Complex aromas of citrus curd, stone fruit and fresh figs with notes of struck flint, brioche and a hint of spicy French oak. The palate is layered and complex. Flavours of fresh peach compote, citrus zest and roasted hazelnuts are underpinned by a fine creamy texture and flinty bottle complexity.

Fermented and matured for 11 months in French oak barriques & hogsheads (35% new, 45% one year old, 20% two to four years old).

At over 500 metres above sea level, Heggies Vineyard is a single site vineyard in the high country of Eden Valley, producing truly individualistic cool climate white wines.

Heggies could be called viticultural “struggle country”. The winters are cold and wet, summers mild but very dry and the soils are thin and gravelly on well drained slopes. This provides low yields, yet consistently produces grapes of outstanding flavour intensity.
