Seppelt’s Original Sparkling Shiraz is one of the best. Drink now in style with plenty of complex flavours. It is ultimately very satisfying to drink. The first Sparkling Shiraz appeared here in the 1890s.
Seppelt’s history is closely linked with the Great Western region of Victoria. Founded in 1851 their wines are often some of the best in Victoria. Great Western certainly favours reds which Seppelt exploits to their advantage. Their top wines: St Peter’s Shiraz, Show Sparkling Shiraz, Drumborg Riesling and more are often considered the best in their style for the whole country.
A bit of a chameleon, Shiraz can change how it looks depending on terroir and/or wine maker influence. The Syrah based wines of Northern Rhone are dry and austere while the Shiraz of Barossa is rich and fleshy. A variety that lends itself to long aging but can be drunk at any time of its evolution.
