Heggies Vineyard Cloudline Chardonnay 2019

Made by Teresa Heuzenroeder and part of the greater Yalumba stable. The name recognising that the vineyard sits at 500 metres above sea level. Partial French oak maturation (20%), limited new (5%) and the remainder 1 year and older.

Heggies Vineyard, Cloudline, Chardonnay, Eden Valley, 2019

Aromas of savoury malt with ginger biscuit, peach and plump raisin. Grapefruit pith/skin and some custardy sulfites Somewhat of a “doughnut” palate. Like the buffalo girls, the flavour goes around the outside and leaves little through the middle. Tart lime/grapefruit citrus dominate while the acidity is somewhat sour, green and a little piercing. Could do with a little more flesh on the bones.

RRP: $25
Alc: 13%
Rating: 17/20 (88/100)
