Seppelt Jaluka Chardonnay 2017 (6 Bottle Case)
New vintage release
Deriving its name from the picturesque Jaluka Forest in the Northern Grampians of Western Victoria, Seppelt Jaluka Chardonnay is expressive of the cool maritime climate of the Henty region. Traditional winemaking and gentle handling ensure that this wine captures the distinctive characteristics of this unique region.
Whole bunch pressed and barrel fermented, it offers aromas of white flowers, roasted nuts and grapefruit pith complemented by flinty barrel ferment characters. On the palate, vibrant and intense fruit weight is balanced out with zingy, crunchy acidity and nutty oak. The balanced combination of lees texture and mineral structure adds layers of complexity to the palate.

"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." Campbell Mattinson
