Drumborg Vineyard Riesling 2022

Overview

Overview

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

Riesling was the first variety planted at Drumborg in 1964 and is one of Seppelt’s most sought-after whites due to its purity, intensity of flavour and remarkable cellaring potential. Traditional winemaking techniques including cool tank fermentation followed by a short period of maturation on lees are used to bring about the truest expression of the vineyard. The 2022 vintage is a classic example of Drumborg Riesling representing the purity, balance, and length inherent to this special vineyard.

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 wet winter coupled with a wet, cold spring delayed flowering which resulted in poor set in the Riesling. A relatively mild ripening period ensured the fruit was picked in a timely fashion, ahead of what was shaping to be a late season. A low yielding but great quality year in Drumborg for Riesling.
