SEPPELT - THE DRIVES CHARDONNAY 2019 (Box of 6)
The Drives by Seppelt wines celebrates the superb regionality of selected Victorian Vineyards as well as the determination and vision of Seppelt’s founder Joseph Ernst Seppelt, a pioneer and visionary winemaker from the Victorian era, who planted the first Seppelt Vineyard in 1851. When Joseph Best discovered the ground on the site was made of a rock bed of decomposed granite, an easily dug, yet solid compound, he commissioned local gold miners to tunnel underground cellars to store his wines. These cellars are known to this day as ‘The Drives’.
The fruit for The Drives Chardonnay was primarily sourced from vineyards located in the Yarra Valley and Henty regions. Both regions are known for their cold, wet winters while the summers have warm days and cold nights, which is perfect for producing Chardonnay with intense fruit flavours and crisp, cleansing natural acidity.
