Deriving its name from the picturesque Mount Chalambar near Great Western in central Victoria, Seppelt Chalambar Shiraz has an excellent pedigree, having been made since 1953. Originally crafted by the legendary Colin Preece and labelled as Chalambar Burgundy, this wine has become one of the most sought after Seppelt releases each year due to its consistency, quality and value. Sourced from the Grampians and Heathcote regions in Western and Central Victoria, there is a great balance of violets, pepper and spice from the Grampians fruit that provides contrasting elegance to the strength of Heathcote's dark plum fruit.
Destemmed (not crushed), matured in 225l French barriques and 3000l French vats (15% new) for 12 months. Handsomely over-delivers, with a supple medium-bodied palate of berries and plums given shape by superfine yet intense tannins. Great bargain. Drink by: 2032; Price: $27.00; Date Tasted: May 2019; Alcohol: 13.5%; Rating: 96 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion
