Seppelt Show Sparkling Shiraz has been the benchmark for all Australian Sparkling Shiraz and recently was awarded a ‘3 Merit Wine” classification from The Real Review.
The Real Review Wine Classification of Australia
One of only two sparkling wines awarded as a “3 Merit Wine”, and the only Sparkling Shiraz. The Seppelt Show Sparkling Shiraz will continue to be the measure for all Australian Sparkling Shiraz wines.
The generations of winemakers from Great Western only make this wine in exceptional vintages. The current release, the 2008 Seppelt Show Sparkling Shiraz celebrates the long history and tradition of Seppelt Sparkling wines and pays homage to this unique Australian wine style.
The Real Reviews Wine Classification of Australia comprises the greatest wines of Australia with an outstanding track record of a decade or longer. Less than 2% of the wines produced in Australia are listed, and only 0.5% of the wines produced achieved the “3 Merit Wines” classification of the Show Sparkling Shiraz.
The biggest names in Australian Wines sit on the same shelf as the Seppelt Show Sparkling Shiraz. Henschke Hill of Grace, Penfolds Grange and our Grampians Wine neighbour, Mount Langi Ghiran with their amazing Langi Shiraz. All these wines also received The Real Review Classification of Australia – “3 Merit Wines”
The Seppelt Show Sparkling Shiraz is aged in the bottle on lees for a minimum of seven years. It’s disgorged at exactly the right maturity, this wine is ready to drink now and will reward with further careful cellaring.
Rich, bright fruit belie its age, displaying blackberry, dark cherry and raspberry compote. Some complex crushed leaves and chocolate flavours reveal sweet spices. The fine, mature tannins provide a distinction and balance that show us it was worth the wait. A wine for collectors and those who like to bring something special to the table.
The Seppelt Cellar door has the current release available to purchase, both online and direct from our cellar door. Seppelt cellar door is open 7 days a week.
