Overview

Overview

Sourced from the mature, cool climate Drumborg Vineayrd in south west Victoria’s Henty region, our Pinot Noir is part of Seppelt’s iconic Drumborg vineyard range. Planted in 1964 by Karl Seppelt, the Drumborg vineyard is renowned for its cool climate, single vineyard wines which are a reflection of the beauty and purity of this isolated site.


Seppelt Drumborg vineyard Pinot Noir is an expression of its unique site. Select parcels of Pinot Noir were chosen for intensity of flavour and structure. Traditional winemaking techniques were used, followed by maturation in French oak barrique. The 2021 vintage is a powerful iteration that seamlessly reflects its sense of place.

Taste Description

Taste Description

Nose

Enticing bramble notes are layered with red fruit, wet cement and a touch of gun flint.

Flavours and Palate

Very even and creamy with plush, mouth filling juicy fruit, in particular cherry stone and redcurrant. Complex gunflint, textural, fine grained tannins and well-integrated, subtle oak adds structure and persistence and closes out the power of this wine with restrained delicacy.

Henty, Victoria

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 dry late winter with very wet conditions during October and November. The summer growing season was mild with a cool and relatively dry harvest period. These conditions resulted in below average yields but an excellent quality vintage for Drumborg in 2021.
