Heppington is 6.25 hectares Estate, overlooking Canterbury Cathedral. It was planted by Henry Blaxland in 2016, descendant of Gregory Blaxand, who emigrated from Canterbury to Australian in 1806. Gregory was the first person to export wine from Australia to the UK, winning a silver medal for his red wine in London in 1822! The land, which has been in the family for generations, now produces exquisite wines and the Chardonnay is a fine example of this. The wine is aged in French Oak barrels, lending a delicate hazelnut (or cobnut!) aroma. On the palate the wine delivers orchard fruit, crunchy peach and a grapefruit zest finish. An elegant wine steeped in history.
