Legend has it that when Seppelt was much larger, a battle would rage between the table and sparkling winemaking teams for the best shiraz. This wine has great colour, and is stacked with blackberry, spice and chocolate flavours - precisely those that the '61 showed. 13.5% alc; crown seal; Rating: 96 points; drink to 2054; $100; James Halliday; The Weekend Australian
 
Eight years on lees. First release since the 1994. Released in the first week of September 2013. Production of 1000 cases. The most prestigious sparkling red in the world. Traditionally released as a ten year old but impatience has won the day. Its complexity announces itself like a flying red flag. Bright raspberry, mushroom, earth spice and leathery black cherry. Medium bodied but almost has a blackcurrant aspect. Has a big kick through the finish. Has a soft mellowness through the centre, though it still feels very young. Too young. Purple and red fruits. Dry, almost tannic finish. Soft and ready-enough to drink and yet it’s been built to age. Has decades ahead of it, particularly under crown seal. The dryness of the finish is compelling. Thoroughly modern and yet thoroughly traditional. Drier and less flesh than the Seppelt SSRS of the 1980s, for instance, but long term it will be a tremendous wine. It will live for 30+ vintages if stored correctly. Rated : 96 Points; Alcohol : 13.5% Price : $100 Closure : Crownseal Drink : 2016 - 2040 Campbell Mattinson; The Wine Front
 
Seppelt Great Western will release another of their rare and iconic Seppelt Show Sparkling Shiraz on 2 September this year. The current release is 2004, which winemaker Adam Carnaby says is "the ultimate expression of Great Western shiraz - floral and full-bodied style with fantastic longevity. A very special wine indeed." GT WINE had the privilege of tasting 1965 Seppelt Sparkling Burgundy alongside the current release 2004 Seppelt Show Sparkling Shiraz (A$100). The quality of the '65 was astounding while the 2004 is fantastic drinking now and, under crown seal, should cellar for another 30-50 years. A wine to get your hands on and put away for Christmas celebrations to come. Gourmet Traveller WINE Magazine
