During 150 years of winemaking, Seppelt has built a reputation of innovation and dedication to quality. The Seppelt approach is to harness the strength and characteristics of each region and create varietally and regionally expressive wines.
Sourced from the mature, cool-climate Drumborg vineyard planted in 1964 in the far south-west corner of Victoria, this Seppelt Drumborg Riesling is a pure expression of elegance and structure. Parcels of Riesling were chosen for their flavour intensity, expression of vineyard character and mineral acidity. Traditional winemaking techniques were used including cool tank fermentation followed by a short period of maturation on lees. The quality highlights the region's ability to produce a fresh, elegant and refined style yet with intense flavours.
Seppelt came close to abandoning this vineyard in Henty 30 or so years ago due to variability of the crop, a problem no more. The perfumed fragrance is wonderful, at once light and intense. Citrus and apple blossom notes are quite special, and illuminate the very long palate and aftertaste. Henty.
