Seppelt St. Peters Grampians Shiraz 2020

Share

Former Wolf Blass winemaker, Clare Dry, underwent a baptism of fire when she started at Seppelt in late 2020. Her first job was to blend the company’s flagship red, St. Peters Shiraz. The wine was made by Adam Carnaby, but the final taste and shape of the wine shows Clare’s touch. It’s unusually open for a St. Peters – it’s a style that can be closed and in need of a decanter at this early stage – and this vintage is ready to reveal a wealth of black berry, black cherry, anise, black olive savoury notes, briar and earth. At its heart is a core of concentrated fruit power with generous cedar oak that has been slurped up. Oak is not intrusive, but it is certainly noted. Tannins are ripe and even handed. As always, St. Peters is worthy of extended time in the cellar.
