St. Peters Grampians Shiraz 2020

Overview

Overview

Released in small quantities and only in exceptional years, St Peter’s is Seppelt’ s flagship Shiraz, testimony to the distinctive style and pedigree of Grampians Shiraz. The lineage of this iconic wine dates back to 1964, when ‘great western hermitage’, as it was then known, was first made. Since 1998 this wine has been called St Peter’s in honour of the first vineyard planted in the region.

Today St Peter’s is sourced from the finest and most intense fruit from the best blocks of the Great Western Vineyard. With extraordinary cellaring potential of 50 years or more, this wine is classified ‘Outstanding’ by Langton’s in its classification of Australian Wine VI.

Taste Description

Taste Description

Nose

Classically regional with lifted blueberry and blackberry fruit, violets, flint and a touch of freshly cracked black pepper.

Flavours and Palate

Medium-bodied with luscious open weaved sweet blueberry fruit and peppery spice on the mid palate. Definitive St Peters graphite tannins provide an incredible savoury, slatey and gravelly length to the back end of this wine. Subtle toasty, charry oak and a touch of gunflint reduction provides extra depth to what is a restrained yet powerful wine.

Viticulture Vintage & Winemaking

Viticulture Vintage & Winemaking

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.

Vintage Conditions

A generally wet winter and dry spring/summer characterized by seesawing temperature extremes throughout the season with very windy conditions throughout spring and particularly around flowering. Average yields with good quality, regionally definitive wines.
