Seppelt is famous for being a pioneer of Australia’s unique sparkling Shiraz wine style and has more experience making it than any other producer in the world. This over a century long tradition began in the 1890s at Seppelt Great Western under the leadership of Hans Irvine who produced our first Sparkling Burgundy (as it was known then) in 1893.
Sparkling Shiraz is a wine of glorious complexity and timeless age worthiness. The rich and sumptuous style explodes on the palate with generous plum and savoury spice flavours and indulgent chocolate and earthy characters.
