Seppelt Wines to enjoy this Spring!

Spring has sprung and Seppelt Wines are beckoning!

Spring is an amazing time to visit Seppelt Wines in Great Western.  The cellar doors are back open and we are welcoming people back on tours and into our gardens.  This spring we invite you to experience for yourself the luxurious aromas, taste and textures of our top picks for the new season, perfect for long, slow, Spring sipping.

Sparkling delights

Nothing says crowd pleaser quite like bubbles do and our very popular Seppelt The Great Entertainer, Prosecco NV certainly fits the bill! Selected from our Great Entertainer Range of fresh, lively drops and inspired by the many colourful personalities who have been part of the Seppelt legend since 1851.

Pop that cork and let the good times flow and you will discover a fabulous slightly sweet, yet zesty, sparkling white wine with delicious flavours of pear and crisp green apple on the palate and fresh strawberry and nectarine hints on the nose. Perfect to share with your besties in the sunshine whilst enjoying finger food, canapes or during dinner, particularly with chicken, fish or light pasta dishes. 

How about trying something new?

The newest addition to our white wine collection is the Seppelt 2018 Vintage Gruner Veltliner. The 2018 Vintage has produced a wine with enticing aromatics of citrus, pear and green apple and a textured, mouthwatering palate of lime, citrus and pear overtones, superbly balanced with a long finish.

Grown in the Henty Region at our award-winning Drumborg Vineyard, in far South West Victoria, The Gruner Veltliner has received many awards and accolades, including Gold in the 2019 Melbourne Wine Show, Silver in the 2019 National Wine Show Australia, and 95 points in the James Halliday Wine Companion, with Halliday stating “It is long, intense, citrus-tinged and has real purpose.” Looking for a white that goes with everything? Look no further than the Seppelt Gruner Veltliner!

Gruner Veltliner is one of the most versatile wines to pair with food. It is particularly delicious paired with acidic foods such as fried chicken, lemon dishes, and vinaigrettes. Enjoy!

Fancy a red that’s perfect for spring?

For something deliciously different this spring we have a red wine that pairs perfectly with sunny days! With its garnet hues and complex, yet delicate, dry flavours of red fruits such as redcurrants and spiced cherries with velvety tannins, subtle oak and a perfumed nose of strawberries and sweet spice, the Seppelt 2019 Vintage Pinot Meunier will delight your senses.

This wine forms part of Seppelt Wine's prized luxury Drumborg Vineyard Range, sourced from the mature, cool-climate Seppelt Drumborg Vineyard in South-West Victoria’s Henty Region which is swept by icy winds from the Southern Ocean and is one of the Southern-most vineyards of mainland Australia.

The Seppelt Drumborg Pinot Meunier is a unique example of this variety which was originally planted in 1966 to be used as a component of premium sparkling wine. It is amongst only a handful of wines made in this fashion in Australia.

Delicious paired with seafood, pork, duck, cured meats and cheese.  The Seppelt 2019 vintage Drumborg Pinot Meunier was awarded 96 points by James Halliday, who declared it “an entrancing bouquet of red fruits and spices, the slightly savoury palate building complexity. A perfect Meunier”. With that impressive recommendation, you should most definitely add it to your wine list!
