The 2019 Jaluka Chardonnay from Seppelt is pale straw with green hues. Good complexity on the nose with plenty of stone fruit aromatics and hints of peach-skin, balanced with subtle oak note. On the palate, white peach flavours combine with citrus notes and subtle spicy oak characters. The chalky acidity is balanced by creamy lees texture to produce a complex, refined Chardonnay.

"Jaluka presents the pristine qualities of Henty chardonnay with some subtle oak injection and nutty matchstick notes. It's a delicate balance given the delicacy of fruit. Citrus, nectarine, white peach, mealy aromas give way to a buttery, nutty palate, quite succulent and finishing soft."

Winery & Vintage Info

Deriving its name from Victoria’s picturesque Jaluka Forest, Jaluka Chardonnay is a bright, modern expression of Chardonnay from the Henty region in South-West Victoria.

Jaluka Chardonnay harnesses the unique characteristics and cool maritime climate of Henty, and incorporates some parcels of fruit from Seppelt’s prized Drumborg Vineyard established in 1964 – one of the Southernmost Vineyards of mainland Australia. The 2019 Jaluka features lively citrus and stone fruit characters with a creamy texture balanced by well-integrated French oak to produce a complex, refined Chardonnay.

100% barrel fermented with solids included and only a small amount of MLF. Lees stirred once a month and matured for nine months in a combination of French oak barriques (225L), Puncheons (500L) and Vats (3000L) – 25% new oak overall. Winery Notes
