Our Pierlot Brut Rose celebrates the determination and vision of Charles Pierlot. The Champenoise winemaker who pioneered the production of the first Methode Traditionalle Sparkling wines in Australia. In 1890 at our Great Western Winery, Charles Pierlot was instrumental in crafting Seppelt’s reputation as the home of Sparkling wine in Australia.
This wine is made from traditional sparkling varieties of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier, Pierlot Brut Rose is a reflection of the finesse and elegance of the cool climate Henty Region in South Western Victoria.
