Overview

Overview

Seppelt Mount Ida is sourced from the extraordinary Shiraz growing region of Heathcote in central Victoria. Produced in small quantities and only in exceptional vintages, this wine is named after our dry-grown Mount Ida vineyard planted in 1975, one of the pioneering vineyards in the region.

The 2014 Mount Ida Shiraz expresses the intense colour and flavours Heathcote Shiraz is renowned for and displays the regional character derived from the famous red Cambrian soils of the area.

Halliday Wine Companion

"Not a hair out of place and yet it still manages some flair. This is a wine of high quality. Redcurrant and plum, mint and clove, a slide of saucy, smoky oak. It has both lift and depth, churning tannin and juicy, rushing momentum. It will seduce. There's no stopping it."

Taste Description

Taste Description

Nose

The nose displays aromas of dark plums and chocolate with earthy spice and meaty elements in the background.

Flavours and Palate

The palate has bright, crunchy blackberry fruit combined with savoury, earthy characters. Fine powdery tannins, fleshy texture and well integrated cedary oak add complexity.

Heathcote, Victoria

Rocketing to fame for Shiraz borne from its long band of red volcanic soil winding up to Mount Camel, Heathcote’s naturally fertile, rust coloured Cambrian earth is over 100 million years old. The result is deeply coloured, seductive wines.

Hand-picked fruit from the Mount Ida Vineyard was destemmed with no crushing, then fermented on skins in open fermenters for 10 days with gentle handplunging, followed by maturation for 14 months in 225 litre French oak barrels (40% new).

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.
