Seppelt St Peters Shiraz 2019

Released in small quantities and only in exceptional years, St Peter’s is Seppelt’ s flagship shiraz, testimony to the distinctive style and pedigree of Grampians shiraz. The lineage of this iconic wine dates back to 1964, when ‘great western hermitage’, as it was then known, was first made. Since 1998 this wine has been called St Peter’s in honour of the first vineyard planted in the region.

Today St Peter’s is sourced from the finest and most intense fruit from the best blocks of the Great Western Vineyard.

In vintage 2019, this included select parcels of fruit from the bass and Arrawatta blocks and is a powerful, seductive expression of shiraz from the Great Western region. With extraordinary cellaring potential of 50 years or more, this wine is classified ‘Outstanding’ by Langton’s in its classification of Australian Wine VI,
