Overview

Overview

During 150 years of winemaking, Seppelt has built a reputation of innovation and dedication to quality. The Seppelt approach is to harness the strength and characteristics of each region and create wines which are varietally and regionally expressive – wines with a ‘sense of place’.

The Great Western area of the Grampians region has a long history of producing classic, age-worthy aromatic Riesling. The 2017 vintage has produced a wine with delicate perfumed aromatics combined with a mouth-watering acid structure, superbly balanced with an off-dry finish.

James Halliday

"Selectiv'-harvested, crushed, fermented in tank, minimum time on lees. A label with a long history. It was early picked, with high acidity balanced by similarly high titratable acidity. This is the Mosel Valley speaking, and I'm an all-day sucker when it comes to this."

Taste Description

Taste Description

Nose

Aromas of mulberry and blue fruits with exotic spices and a lifted floral nose.

Flavours and Palate

The palate shows lemon-lime fruit and red apple with a hint of spiced ginger. Textural elements combined with chalky acid result in a wine with balance and delicacy.

Viticulture Vintage & Winemaking

Viticulture Vintage & Winemaking

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.

A wet winter with above average rainfall was followed by cool, dry spring conditions, resulting in good fruit set and lower than average yields. Summer temperatures were cool with little rain, resulting in a long growing season and exceptional quality.

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.
