Seppelt has been at the forefront of Australian winemaking for over 160 years. From its humble beginnings in 1851, when Joseph Seppelt established Seppeltsfield in the Barossa, to today: renowned for producing elegant shiraz, table and sparkling wines from an exceptional collection of Victorian vineyards. Seppelt pioneered cool climate viticulture with the establishment of the Drumborg vineyard at Henty in 1964. The ground-breaking vineyard was planted with the express purpose of providing the highest quality Chardonnay.
About a quarter comes from grower vineyards in Henty, Victoria, the rest comes from Drumborg Vineyard. Just under 20% new oak. Ballistically good value. Comely perfume that shows creamy, warm almond character over fresh stone fruit, a touch of citrus, golden delicious apple. Lots to like in scent here and a good set up for the supple chardonnay flavours and understated spicy oak that follows. Light creaminess to texture, soft, pillowy yet very fresh. Subtle in a way, elegant, draws you back to the glass. The word ‘lovely’ comes to mind readily. Alcohol: 12.7%; Price: $27; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2017 - 2025; Rated: 93+ Points; Mike Bennie; The Wine Front
Spicy, waxy and faintly tropical, with a smooth, effortless and pristine palate of stonefruit and citrus. Drink: 2021-2024; Price: $27.00; Alcohol: 12.7%; Rating: 93 Points; Jeremy Oliver; Australian Wine Annual
A leaner and fine boned style of Jaluka. I had to do a double-take at the price offered. Silly buggers really. Gentle creaminess, yellow stone fruits with a slathering of nougat and some nuttiness. Textural feels are evident with lemon juice providing a late cameo. It's softness and pretty delivery is hard to refuse. Cracking value. Drink now to eight years. RRP: $27. Rating: 93 Points; QWine
