Overview

Overview

This wine forms part of Seppelt’s prized Drumborg Vineyard Range, sourced from the mature, cool-climate Seppelt Drumborg Vineyard in South-West Victoria’s Henty Region. Planted in 1964 by Karl Seppelt and swept by icy Winds from the Southern Ocean, it is one of the Southern-most vineyards of mainland Australia.

Seppelt Drumborg Vineyard Henty Chardonnay is an expression of purity and balance. Select parcels of Chardonnay are chosen for their intensity of flavor and mineral acid structure. Traditional winemaking techniques are used, including fermentation in a combination of small and large format French oak followed by maturation on less. The 2018 vintage of this wine is a finely structured, yet powerful expression of Chardonnay with flavours of pear and citrus peel.

James Halliday

“Mature estate vines, hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed, barrel-fermented with full solids included, mlf blocked. A wine of striking purity and focus, minerally acidity the framework on which to display the classic ultra-cool grown fruit flavours with pink grapefruit and white peach leading the way. A long future.”

Viticulture

Viticulture

A cool winter with good early rainfall was followed by warm, dry spring conditions, resulting in excellent fruit set. Summer temperatures were average to warm, with persistent fine conditions and little rain, resulting in above-average yields and exceptional quality.
