Seppeltsfield was established in the Barossa Valley by Joseph and Johanna Seppelt just 15 years after the European settlement of South Australia. Steeped in rich Barossan heritage, the estate is considered a true national treasure which helped shape the history of the Australian wine industry.
Powerful yet elegant, fresh and lashings of bright and dark fruit yet showing a balancing restraint. An exceptional effort, an absolute tour de force of Barossa Shiraz and one of my favourite releases for a year. Drink: Now – 2028+; Quality: Exceptional BW; WineStar© April 2018
Deep, dark, dense red/purple colour, with a deep but latent, shy bouquet featuring dried herbs, nettles and spices, while it's full-bodied and fruit-sweet, lush, decadently rich and loaded with slightly bitter-tea tannins and licoricey super-ripe flavours that linger on and on. A very powerful and impressive shiraz. And great value. Drink: 2020 to 2036; Price: $25.00; Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 95 Points; Huon Hooke; The Real Review
From the resurrected, famed Seppeltsfield of the Barossa Valley. I like that the wine style is a nod in the direction of tradition too. Hearty, inviting, proudly from its place, for the future, looking into the past. Lush red of generous sweeps of forest berries and peppery spice with cedary oak meshed well and nipping at the heels of the wine. It’s medium to full weight, soupy yet fresh, gently sweet in a way but has a chomp of friendly tannin and some savouriness underlying. A warm cuddle. Smile on the dial stuff. Aside all that it’s a beautifully realised wine, clean and fresh, balanced, long in flavour, generous and yet not overblown. Kudos all. Tasted: April 18; Alcohol: 14.5%; Price: $25; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2018 - 2022; Rated: 93 Points; Mike Bennie; The Wine Front
