2011 Seppelt Drumborg Chardonnay
Wine Rating 
 
95

The Drumborg Vineyard put Henty on the map with the annual release of the wines something I eagerly anticipate every time I get the opportunity to try them.

The 2011 release is a lightly golden yellow in colour, the nose is delicate but has some underlying richness with white peach, nectarine, and a slight leesy character that's complemented by vanillin oak.

The palate is rich on entry but has focused acidity with complex stone fruits backed by spicy oak and superb length. In its youth there is a little apricot, with the 2011 best described as a pretty wine with great balance.

This wine is drinking superbly now and over the medium term. A triumph of the vintage.
