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.
Chardonnay – The grape that you can plant anywhere, in any climate and do anything to and it will still taste like an OK wine. When people hit the sweet spot of site, climate, cropping and winemaking, Chardonnay becomes a magical wine that will age gracefully but charm you at any age. Chardonnays can range from cool climate lean and citrusy to warmer climate tropical and overt. Oak and lees can add flavouring as can malolactic fermentation.
