Seppelt St. Peters Grampians Shiraz 2016 (6 Bottle Case
The flagship wine in the Seppelt portfolio, St Peters is sourced from the finest and most intense fruit grown on our Great Western vineyards and is the ultimate expression of cool climate Grampians Shiraz. The lineage of this iconic wine dates back to 1964 when Great Western Hermitage was first made. The wine is only made in exceptional years and is now called St Peters after the name of our most historic block of Shiraz.
This wine, made in very small quantities, is a carefully balanced medium bodied wine that displays complex flavours reflective of the local terroir; plush blueberries and Satsuma plums combined with tight, fine tannins and a core of graphite-like mineral texture. This wine is delicately poised, yet powerful. With subtle creamy, cedary oak and a persistent length of flavour, it finishes complex and refined.

"At this stage still quite closed. Nothing leaps out of the glass, and what you find with exploration is given up reluctantly. Deep and brooding, there are aromas of charcuterie, red and black fruits, and a suggestion of the countryside - freshly mown hay and dust. The palate is dense but it feels medium-bodied, with ripe but slightly tart-edged fruit buried in a surreptitiously enveloping cloak of tannin that builds and builds. This wine will take you on an intriguing journey if you have the time to follow it." Halliday Wine Companion
"Beautiful perfume, silky medium weight, touches of spice and herbal detail, bright red berry fruit spectrum and a fine dusting of pepper. It’s a really lovely wine, glorious for its texture, brilliant for its length and elegance, though you could say it’s a riper flavour profile for a St Peters. Seamless flow and with good concentration, the glide across the palate is notable. It’s quite addictive to drink, indeed." Mike Bennie
