Overview

Overview

Chalambar Shiraz was first crafted in 1953 by Australian Winemaking legend Colin Preece. Named after the picturesque Mount Chalambar located in Victoria’s Grampians Region, this wine is a multi-regional blend of Premium Shiraz parcels sourced from some of Victoria’s finest viticultural regions.

This vintage harnesses the individual strengths and distinct characteristics of spicy, floral Grampians Shiraz complemented by juicy Heathcote Shiraz. Expect savoury spice aromas with a medium-bodied palate abundant with mulberry fruits, complex spice flavours, and fine, velvety tannins.

"The blending of 2 of Victoria's leading shiraz-producing regions sounds like a marriage made in heaven. It certainly gives extra gravitas to this well-known label in the form of added depth of intensity on the palate, thanks to the role of the Heathcote fruit. Everything appears turned up a notch from the density of the purple hues to the firmness of fine tannins. Oak is perfectly in balance." 92 Points

Grampians, Victoria

Viticulture dates back to the 1850s Victorian gold rush in the cool and dry Grampians. The golden nugget of this stunning terroir is delicate yet intensely flavoured Shiraz with compelling fragrance and spice.

Adam Carnaby - Seppelt Winemaker

As a Hospitality Manager at Melbourne’s Hilton Hotel, Adam’s affinity for the wine industry became so apparent that he enrolled in a Bachelor of Wine Science degree at Charles Sturt University, graduating in 2003. In 2001 he was appointed Assistant Winemaker at Yering Station in the Yarra Valley where he remained for five years, gaining vintage experience in Burgundy in-between. Then in 2007 he moved to Margaret River to be a Winemaker at Xanadu Wines for a further five years. These days Adam proudly dons two winemaking hats, creating outstanding cool climate wines from across Victoria: in 2011 he commenced as Seppelt Winemaker and in 2016 added the responsibilities of being Winemaker for T’Gallant. He relishes the challenge of being in charge of two great Australian wine producers – Seppelt with its 165 year history and focus on cool climate sparkling, Shiraz, Chardonnay and Riesling from the Grampians, Heathcote and Henty regions; and the more eccentric T’Gallant, pioneers of Pinot Grigio and Gris in Australia based in the Mornington Peninsula.
