Wine Summary Image

Heggies Vineyard could be called viticultural "struggle country". The winters are cold and wet, summers mild but very dry and the soils are thin and gravely on well drained slopes. This gives low yields but consistently produces grapes of outstanding flavour intensity. There are seven different selections of Chardonnay in Heggies Vineyard, with three favoured Burgundian variants comprising the majority of the vines. The vines are shy bearing, giving grapes of intense flavour. Hand picking and gentle whole bunch pressing minimises the extraction of tannins and preserves natural fruit aromas.

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Colour

The wine is a pale lemon yellow colour

Aroma

An intense lively nose of peach and nectarine with an edgy citrus tang of cumquats.

Palate

Line and length are the hallmarks of an outstanding wine and is a signature of the Heggies Vineyard Chardonnay.

The palate opens with stone fruit and builds to the mouth-filling complexity

and texture of warm brioche. Interest is held by a rich creamy finish. All

Heggies Vineyard wines show an excellent minerality that contributes to the

length and finesse.

The wine will peak in five to seven years and will continue to offer pleasure and

interest for at least 10 years. This Heggies Vineyard Chardonnay would be an

excellent accompaniment to Asian fusion cuisine; try with steamed fish and

ginger.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The magnificent sweep of country that is now the Heggies Vineyard had been grazing land for most of its settled history and was owned by local grazier and bushman, Colin Heggie, before being purchased by Wyndham Hill Smith, then Manager of the Yalumba Wine Company.

Friends since school days, Colin and Wyndham's friendship continued into adulthood and throughout their lengthy negotiation over the purchase of Heggie's land - a negotiation that was, it has been suggested, not a lot more than an excuse for relaxed chats about land, cattle, horses, wine and life!

Planting began in 1971 on the tough North Eastern corner of the property and the first wine was released in 1979. It was the first wine to bear the idiosyncratic label that features a drawing of Colin Heggie, the bushman, looking out over the fledgling Heggies plantings astride his faithful chestnut, Jack.

At 550 metres above sea level, Heggies is one of Australia's highest altitude vineyards and also one of its coolest. The close-planted clonally-selected grafted vines are grown in semi-drought conditions, meaning the soil is lean and hungry - a thin layer of grey sandy loam over clay and decomposed rock. The vines compete vigorously for moisture and nutrient, encouraging roots to dig deep into the soil where it is moist and cool throughout all seasons.
