The house of Seppelt is home to a long tradition of sophisticated sparkling wine. Hans Irvine employed Frenchman Charles Pierlot from Champagne in 1890 to craft Australia’s first methode traditionelle wines. The specialised styles were destined for greatness. Seppelt’s finest sparkling white wine now bears the name of Pierlot’s wife, Ellena Salinger.
"Salinger is a celebration of luxurious French elegance and Australian terroir."
The classic assemblage of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunieur comes together in a timeless aperitif style.
