Winemaker's Notes

Heggies is a single vineyard in the Eden Valley where the "terroir" is encouraged to produce the distinctive Heggies wine styles. The soil is a thin layer of grey sandy loam over clay and decomposed rock - and vines compete vigorously for moisture and nutrient. An altitude of 550 m above sea level, 787 mm of annual rain, plus innovative viticultural practices produce wines of full flavor and balance. Chardonnay is perfectly suited to the conditions of the site, with new Dijon clones reflecting great synergy between variety and the various microsites within Heggies Vineyard.

Heggies Vineyard Chardonnay 2005 is pale straw with a green tinge and displays a full nose of melon, cashew and figs with toasty undertones. The palate is fine and rich offering pear, quince and nashi melded with a creamy nougat fullness giving a lengthy finish.

This is a fine Heggies Chardonnay; like its predecessors, it can be enjoyed now or be cellared to gain further complexity.
