Released in small quantities and only in exceptional years, 2018 was exceptional as its triple 97/100 ratings suggest. St. Peters is Seppelt’s flagship Shiraz, testimony to the distinctive style and 80-year pedigree of this Grampians Shiraz. This iconic red dates to 1964, when ‘Great Western Hermitage’, as it was then known, was first made. Since renamed St. Peters in 1998 in honour of the first vineyard planted in the region. Today St. Peters is sourced from the finest and most intense old vine fruit from the best blocks of the Great Western Vineyard.
Opulent aromas of Black Doris plums, mulberries, fine mint, hints of coconut and dark chocolate. Beautifully rich palate layered with perfectly ripe black fruits bound by chewy, sinewy tannins that titillate the insides of the cheeks with a dusty, chalky quality. Seductive chocolate, mint, cedar and spice complexities permeate the middle and back palate... the oak influence is very sophisticated. The plushness enables it to be enjoyed young with a good decant... it will evolve more rounded flavours through the 10-20-year mark... but is a Shiraz capable of ageing up to 50-years in the best storage.
Seppelt Great Western Shiraz is a bargain of extraordinary proportions. You would have to search long and hard to find a wine of comparable quality, complexity and sophistication anywhere in the world at $69.90 bottle. Grab yourself a 6-pack (only 18 packs left) and ensure you are on the preferred buyers list for the next allocation. That will be when they make their next vintage and when they favour us with an allocation again... so far, its 7-years since the last one. Enjoy, Jeff
