Seppelt has released its 2019 Luxury Collection – an annual showcase of its celebrated styles.
Ten wines make up this year’s release, led by the flagship 2017 St Peters Grampians Shiraz. The Collection also includes the sought-after Drumborg Vineyard releases and the anticipated formal release of 2008 Show Sparkling Shiraz.
“The 2019 Seppelt Luxury Collection wines are a testament to the diversity and quality of our vineyards,” said Adam Carnaby, Seppelt Winemaker.
“Sourced from an array of Victoria’s most renowned winemaking regions, these wines are crafted to truly reflect their regional nuances – unique characteristics which are quintessentially Seppelt in style.”
“In particular, the 2017 St Peters Shiraz is a real tribute to what the Grampians region can deliver. Utterly distinctive, this year’s release was again sourced from the finest, most intense fruit – resulting in a powerful wine, equally displaying great finesse, that will continue to evolve with age.”
2019 also marks a number of significant milestones for Seppelt, namely; 55 years since the forerunner to St Peters Shiraz, ‘Great Western Hermitage’, was first crafted and the renowned Drumborg Vineyard was planted in 1964.
Additionally, it’s been 20 years since the first bottling of Jaluka Chardonnay – a wine made to be enjoyed on release but equally known for its ability to age gracefully.
“2018 was a magic year across our regions and 2017 in the Grampians resulted in elegant expressions that are complete and well balanced,” Carnaby added.
“Together with the return of Mount Ida and the awaited 2008 Show Sparkling, myself and the team continue to be proud of what this Collection delivers.”
This is the second year Seppelt’s premier wines have been released in unison. The Collection will continue to release annually, with the wines included being vintage dependant.
The complete 2019 Seppelt Luxury Collection is now available from leading retailers nationwide.
