Seppelt Arrawatta Hill Limited Release Shiraz 2019


This wine was chosen as an appropriate special release to recognise the 170th anniversary of Seppelt. This comes from a hill planted by Hans Irvine way back in 1888 but replanted with shiraz from 1999. The wine is a combination of two clones with one contributing the seductive blue fruits and the other, the St. Peters, contributing the savouriness. Interestingly the entire blend is made up of partial whole bunch fermented parcels. So, this is a wine with structure and control, yet with supple fruit and plushness. There is a beautiful purity which shines through on the engaging aromas and the bright palate.
