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 parcels of fruit from Seppelt’s prized Drumborg vineyard which was established in 1964. The 2021 Jaluka features lively citrus and stone fruit characters with a creamy texture balanced by well-integrated French oak to produce a complex, refined Chardonnay.
Lifted romas of white peach, citrus blossom, nougat and nutty barrel ferment characters.
Juicy white peach, citrus notes, cashew and nougat balance the chalky acidity and creamy texture to produce a complex and refined Chardonnay.

Henty is one of the coolest wine regions of Australia but is protected by a maritime influence. Famed for being the home of cool climate viticulture and the iconic Drumborg vineyard, Henty is renowned for its Rieslings, Chardonnays and Sparklings.
A dry late winter with very wet conditions during October and November. The summer growing season was mild with a cool and relatively dry harvest period. These conditions resulted in below average yields but an excellent quality vintage for Henty in 2021.
