The Details

Tasting Note Pale gold with slight green-gold tints. Complex aromas of citrus curd, stone fruit and fresh figs with notes of struck flint, brioche and a hint of spicy French oak. The palate is layered and complex. Flavours of fresh peach compote, citrus zest and roasted hazelnuts are underpinned by a fine creamy texture and flinty bottle complexity.
Best Enjoyed With A lovely accompaniment to pan-seared scallops with pea puree and crispy pancetta or potatoes au gratin.
Treatment Length and line define Heggies Reserve Chardonnay. A finer wine in its youth, gaining more depth and complexity as it ages in the bottle. Released with bottle age greater than 12 months to show the evolution of great Chardonnay. Fermented and matured in French oak barriques and hogsheads (35% new, 45% one year old, 20% two to four years old).
