Overview

Overview

The flagship wine in the Seppelt portfolio, St Peters is sourced from the finest and most intense estate grown fruit and is the ultimate expression of cool climate Grampians Shiraz. The lineage of this iconic wine dates back to 1964 when Great Western Hermitage was first made. The wine is only made in exceptional years and is now called St Peters after the name of our most historic block of Shiraz.


This wine, made in very small quantities, is a carefully balanced medium bodied wine that displays complex flavours reflective of the local terroir.


An outstanding release of St Peters that reflects the superb 2010 vintage; this is a wine to enjoy upon release but will improve with many years of careful cellaring.

Taste Description

Taste Description

Nose

The nose displays aromas of dark, juicy fruits of the forest, spice, subtle floral fruit and cedar oak.

Flavours and Palate

On the palate mulberry fruit and a spicy, juicy mid-palate are supported by fine and supple tannins, graphite and mineral structure with fine grained oak. Subtle savoury notes combined with fleshy and juicy mid palate to a complex and refined finish. A very fine wine.

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.
