The Barossa’s iconic Seppeltsfield revealed a new range of contemporary Barossa table wines in late July, complementing their already esteemed range of fortifieds, and further cementing their positioning as one of Australia’s preeminent, luxury wine producers.
The ‘Bench Blends’ tier of wines comprises the 2019 No. EC3 Barossa Tinta Cao/Tinta Amarela/Touriga (A$45), a deliciously juicy and somewhat exotic expression of the traditional Portuguese varieties, as well as the 2019 No. EC4 Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon/Shiraz (A$45), a seriously structured version of the famous Australian blend and a very safe bet for the cellar.
The ‘Grounds’ tier focuses on premium, single vineyard expressions of Barossa shiraz and includes the 2018 The Westing Shiraz (A$70) – crafted with grapes sourced from the Western Barossa – and the 2018 The Easting Shiraz (A$70), a gloriously perfumed red showcasing the beauty of Eden Valley fruit.
“It’s an exciting time at Seppeltsfield as we progressively expand our still wine collection upward, each tier and wine having a clear purpose and [being] reflective of our philosophy.” said Chief Winemaker (and 2020 Winemaker of the Year finalist) Fiona Donald.
“We have the best combination of highly passionate people, superior vineyard holdings, our unique 1888 Gravity Cellar and history like no other.”
