Drumborg Vineyard Pinot Meunier 2021

Overview

Overview

Sourced from the mature, cool climate Drumborg Vineayrd in south west Victoria’s Henty region, our Pinot Meunier 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.

Pinot Meunier was first planted at Drumborg vineyard in 1966, originally intended for use in our sparkling wine. The sheer age of our vines means they have reached the essential level of maturity required to produce excellent table wine. Seppelt Drumborg vineyard Pinot Meunier is a unique example of this variety and is amongst only a handful of wines made in this fashion in Australia.

Taste Description

Taste Description

Nose

The heady aromas of strawberry compote and sweet spice are balanced by savoury charcuterie, gunflint and truffle notes, creating an intriguing balance.

Flavours and Palate

Juicy redcurrant, sour cherry and violets balance with fine, grainy tannins that work to create a delicate structural framework. Subtle, well integrated oak and gunflint add depth and complexity.

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.
