The flagship wine in the Seppelt portfolio, St Peters is sourced from the finest and most intense estate grown fruit and is the ultimate expression of cool climate Grampians Shiraz. The lineage of this iconic wine dates back to 1964 when Great Western Hermitage was first made. The wine is only made in exceptional years and is now called St Peters after the name of our most historic block of Shiraz. This wine, made in very small quantities, is a carefully balanced medium bodied wine that displays complex flavours reflective of the local terroir.
I can safely say that this is a cracking wine. I’m tempted to use the word scintillating. I enjoyed a couple of glasses last night, and the wine seemed excellent, but this morning it’s risen to another level. The fine threads of tannin, the sink of black pepper, the curls of gun smoke and clove, the rich freshness of cherry-plum fruit. In all respects, it is absolutely top-notch.

The run of scintillating form continues. This builds complexity in lockstep with depth, its black pepper, clove and gun smoke notes sunk deep into the perfectly ripened, smooth-skinned, cherry-plum fruit. Tannin, firm but exquisitely fine, is but one of its many exemplary qualities. A sensational wine.
