A significant stylistic step away from the 2012 vintage (which was an excellent wine), this has a significantly brighter and more fragrant edge to it and is immensely fresh and captivating. The color is a vivid red-purple; it looks lively in the glass. Aromas run a huge range from the most perfumed pink musk and sweet pink roses through an array of complex spices, pepper and bright red fruits. A more toasty, meaty edge gives way to darker more profound stones and graphite. The palate opens with playful fleshy red fruits, plenty of cherries and red plums, plus some raspberries too. It then transforms, revealing a stack of sleek, fine-sheeted tannins and deeper dark-fleshed plum fruit, finishing with plum stone tang. Super fresh and long. This is a revelation. Drink in 2021.

Small batch open-fermented, hand-plunged matured for 14 months in small and large format French oak. Deep crimson; a wine bred in the purple; there is an operatic chorus of purple and black fruits with highlights of spice, gentle, yet persistent tannins and oak the final movement.

The colour is very deep purple/red and the bouquet exudes five spice, licorice, pepper and some sooty, charcoal notes. It has superb concentration of flavour and ample fine-grained tannins. Full-bodied with a fleshy texture. Great intensity of dark fruit flavours on the palate, with a trace of graphite or pencil-lead, typical of the vineyard. This is one of the best young St Peters wines I've ever seen. (mostly whole-berry fermentation with a small percentage of whole bunch, 1200 cases made. Aged in a combination of large vats and barriques, of which 40% were new.) Rating: 97 Points; Huon Hooke

A Rhône-inspired shiraz of remarkable depth, balance and complexity with a deep, heady and floral perfume of translucent black and blue berries, sweet cedary oak and cracked pepper. Medium in weight, it’s smooth and silky, with deep layers of intense small dark fruit and meaty complexity framed by fine-grained tannins, extending with marvellous length and balance towards an elegant and savoury finish. Exceptional. Rating: 97 Points; Jeremy Oliver

Seppelt’s St Peters Shiraz isn’t as inextricably linked to the “St Peters Vineyard” as it once was though the back label notes that it’s grown on vines “planted on ancient gravel and schist soils.” It’s matured in small and large format French oak. I’m happy to call this a sensational wine. It has all bases covered. Complexity, length, lusciousness, savouriness. It’s ripe and tasty but it’s also highly architectural. Cracked black pepper notes act simply to light the fuse. Cellar it for as little or as long as you like.  Price : $80; Closure : Screwcap; Drink : 2015 - 2035+; Rating: 96 Points; Campbell Mattinson; The Wine Front
