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.

Pinot Meunier was planted at Drumborg in 1966 to be used as a component of Premium Sparkling Wine, however it can produce very interesting and delicious dry table wines reminiscent of Pinot Noir. Seppelt Drumborg Vineyard Pinot Meunier is a unique example of this variety and is amongst only a handful of wines made in this fashion in Australia.

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.

Vintage Conditions

A cool winter with good rainfall was followed by a dry spell and then two frost events in early October. Cool conditions during the flowering period resulted in good fruit set. Outside of some high temperatures and windy conditions in late December the remainder of the growing season was cool with long periods of drizzly conditions. Yields were consistent and quality was good
