Description

The Seppeltsfield Barossa Shiraz represents the estate and diverse holding of vineyards that cross the region’s Western ridge, from the North to Southern grounds. Generations of grape growers have farmed this variety in the region since the 1840s – the complex combination of varying geology, geography, and climate interacting to express its qualities in a manner of ways, from perfumed and elegant to rich and generous. Definitively, however, Barossa Shiraz is not simply a translation of grape or grounds; it also represents a tapestry of the region’s history, culture, and pioneering endeavour. With a close eye on what the growing season has provided, Seppeltsfield’s vineyards are considered at individual block level for their suitability of our ‘village’ release. Intensive sampling is undertaken as the fruit approaches ripening maturity, to ensure optimal harvest timing.

TASTING NOTES

Bright red with a youthful crimson hue. Lifted dark cherry and plum fruit with complex brown spices.
Classic Barossa ripeness, dark fruits, and dark chocolate richness. Balanced yet subtle oak, juicy acidity, and polished tannins. Medium to full-bodied, the 2016 Barossa Shiraz displays true Barossa character of dark cherry and plummy fruits, with a medium tannin profile.

FOOD PAIRINGS

Sausages, kebabs, and hearty vegetables that have a nice char from the grill, as well as smoky barbecued meats are the perfect matching for warm climate Shiraz.
