Sep­pelt re­leases five new vin­tages

Central and North Burnett Times - - EASY EATING -

SEP­PELT, one of Aus­tralia’s most his­toric and award-win­ning winer­ies, is cel­e­brat­ing the new vin­tage re­leases of its es­teemed Icon and Drumborg col­lec­tions and the 50th an­niver­sary of its fa­mously chal­leng­ing, yet highly re­ward­ing Drumborg Vine­yard.

Sep­pelt se­nior wine­maker Adam Carn­aby says th­ese wines are all about ex­press­ing the best of the Grampians, Heath­cote and Henty.

“We only make our Drumborg and Icon wines when the vin­tages are ex­cep­tional – and our strat­egy at Sep­pelt is to re­ally let the vine­yards and their re­gion­al­ity shine through in the bot­tle,” he said.

“Although all sourced from Vic­to­rian re­gions, each vine­yard ex­pe­ri­ences in­ter­est­ing dif­fer­ences in cli­mate, soil type, el­e­va­tion, sun­shine, wind and rain, and es­pe­cially in the case of Drumborg, chal­leng­ing weather pat­terns.

“It’s fas­ci­nat­ing to see the end re­sult, par­tic­u­larly off the back of great vin­tages, which was cer­tainly the case for our 2012 St Peters Shi­raz, 2012 Mt Ida Shi­raz and the lat­est Drumborg wines, which are the epit­ome of what their re­gions and vine­yards can pro­duce,” Mr Carn­aby said.

The new re­leases are: Sep­pelt Drumborg Chardonnay 2013 $39.99 Sep­pelt Drumborg Ries­ling 2014 $39.99 Sep­pelt Drumborg Pinot Noir 2013 $44.99 Sep­pelt Mount Ida Shi­raz 2012 $54.99 Sep­pelt St Peter Shi­raz 2012 $79.99
