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.
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.
