Released in small quantities and only in exceptional years, St. Peters is Seppelt’s flagship Shiraz, testimony to the distinctive style and pedigree of Grampians Shiraz. The lineage of this iconic wine dates back to 1964, when ‘Great Western Hermitage’, as it was then known, was first made. Since 1998 this wine has been called St. Peters in honour of the first vineyard planted in the region.
Today St. Peters is sourced from the finest and most intense fruit from the best blocks of the Great Western Vineyard.
Remarkably deep purple-crimson; first tasted Mar '10 and given 95 points, and has cruised through the last 3 years like Black Caviar, with a virtually unlimited future; it exudes blackberry and spice fruit perfectly framed by fine, ripe tannins and quality French oak. Fully merits its price; the St Peters vineyard has a stellar terroir. Drink to: 2040; Date Tasted: Jul 2013; Alcohol: 14%; Rating: 97 Points; James Halliday Wine Companion
