Heggies vineyard is the sort of place a man would sit on his horse in silence at sunset and marvel at the ways of nature. Through the combination of innovative viticultural practices and unique ‘terroir’, this challenging and picturesque estate vineyard produces distinctive, balanced wines – beautifully structured and long on flavour.
Nestled in the high country of the Eden Valley, Heggies Vineyard is situated at an altitude of 550m above sea level where the soil is a thin layer of grey sandy loam over clay and decomposed rock. With only 787mm of average annual rainfall, the vines compete vigorously for moisture and nutrient, producing wines of full flavour, fineness and balance.

Winery Tasting Notes
The wine is a pale lemon yellow colour
An intense bouquet opening with aromas of lemon blossom, sage and baking bread melded with nuances of cream and nougat.
Line and length are the hallmarks of an outstanding wine and is a signature of the Heggies Vineyard Chardonnay. The palate builds with creamy fullness reminiscent of peaches and cinnamon and “struck match” flintiness from the wild yeasts.
The wine will peak in 5 to 7 years and will continue to offer pleasure and interest for at least 10 years.
This Heggies Vineyard Chardonnay would be an excellent counterpoint to Asian fusion cuisine; try with poached fish.
