Salinger Vintage Cuvée 2017

Overview

Overview

Seppelt is one of the pioneers of Australian Sparking Wine, producing its first vintage in the 1890s under the stewardship of Hans Irvine and Frenchman Charles Pierlot. An enduring dedication to sparkling excellence has been passed down by generations of winemaking greats for over 125 years, ensuring that the current range of sparkling wines both reflect the best of old traditions and modern innovations.

Produced using the traditional method of sparkling production, individual components of pristine Henty fruit were fermented separately before being blended to form the base wine. Seppelt Salinger is bottle-fermented and matured for a minimum of three years on less before disgorging, and is a sparkling wine with great elegance and finesse.
