Heggies Vineyard Chardonnay CONFIRM VINTAGE

Chardonnay Eden Valley South Australia
Heggies could be called struggle country, the vines are shy bearing within an extreme environment, for grapes of intense flavour. There are seven different clones, three favoured French Bernard variants make up the majority. Younger plantings are trained to a vertical shoot position, older vines are grown on a two wire framework, ensuring a range of characters from each harvest. Hand picking and gentle whole bunch pressing minimise the extractions and preserves natural fruit aromas. A completely natural, wild yeast ferment is followed by a year's maturation in a high proportion of new French oak barriques.

Pale straw with green hues. The nose is full of perfumed, vibrant aromas, nectarines and white peach, brioche and white flowers are complemented by a hint of funk thanks to the indigenous yeast. The vibrant palate offers melons and white peach flavours, with beautiful line and length from the wonderfully mouth watering acid, integrated oak complements a fine, elegant palate. The finish is long and persistent with a fresh zestiness.
