Seppelt Jaluka Chardonnay 2017 (Henty)

Pale straw with green hues.

Aromas of white nectarine, nutty oak and citrus pith complemented by flinty barrel ferment characters.

On the palate, vibrant stone-fruit characters are balanced with crunchy acidity and toasty oak. The balanced combination of lees texture and mineral structure adds layers of complexity to the palate.

"Henty Chardonnay. Made by Adam Carnaby. All matured in large format French oak, with a small amount of mlf. Signature line and length but with texture and flavour. It needs time but everything here is in the right place. White peach, citrus, pink grapefruit and creamy/spicy/toasty notes from oak. Almost tart but not quite. Slings confidently, almost aggressively, through the finish. Will be beautiful"

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 southern most vineyards of mainland australia. The 2017 expression features lively citrus and stone fruit characters with a creamy texture balanced by subtle french oak.

100% Chardonnay, 100% barrel fermented with solids included and only a small amount of malolactic fermentation. Lees stirred once a month and matured for nine months in a combination of French oak barriques (225L) and Puncheons (500L) totalling 25% new oak overall.

A wet winter with above average rainfall was followed by cool, dry spring conditions, resulting in good fruit set and lower than average yields for 2017. Summer temperatures were cool with little rain, resulting in a long growing season and exceptional quality.

Harvested in March 2017. Winery Notes
