Overview

Overview

Seppelt has been at the forefront of Australian winemaking for over 160 years with achievements that include producing Australia's first sparkling wine and pioneering the iconic sparkling Shiraz.

The Moyston name originated in Victoria, Australia and evokes almost 50 years of tradition. Seppelt Moyston wines have been made continuously since the early 1950s. They take their name from the small, central Victorian village of Moyston, which was established in the gold mining era and is located south of the Seppelt Great Western Winery and vineyards.

James Halliday

"Selectiv'-harvested, whole berries fermented in static and open fermenters, matured in 20% new oak, includes 13% shiraz. Moyston has come full circle since its glory days in the '50s and early '60s. This comes entirely from the Grampians, and would stand right up to the wines made by winemaker cult hero Colin Preece. And it's such a bargain."

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.
