Wine of the Week AU

Seppelt St Peters Vineyard Shiraz 2021, Grampians, AUD $80

This single-vineyard shiraz, from the famed Great Western subregion of the Grampians, is an iconic wine. The ‘21 is winemaker is Clare Dry’s first St Peters. 10% whole-bunch; 60% large format oak.

The deep, bright red colour tinged with purple introduces a superbly complex, perfectly ripe bouquet that expertly melds cool-grown shiraz spice with earthy/stony, dried herb and chocolate nuances, while the palate is full-bodied and powerful, concentrated and emphatic, with lashings of supple, ripe, beautifully sculpted tannins and a tremendously long aftertaste. An outstanding wine and a great example of the region. So impressive! (Screwcap)
