Overview

Overview

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 2017 expression features lively citrus and stone fruit characters with a creamy texture balanced by subtle French oak.

“Jaluka Chardonnay shows the purity, length and balance you get from the cool Henty region. Barrel-fermented in French oak, it is notably complex and mouth-filling, but doesn't lose focus, its plethora of fruit flavours anchored by natural acidity. The changes in winemaking [at Seppelt] came in with the 2012 vintages onwards. I moved away from Malo in the Chardonnay and started using large format oak and reduced the proportion of new oak.” - Adam Carnaby, Seppelt Winemaker
