Seppelt is considered one of the pioneers of Australian sparkling wine producing its first vintage in the 1890s under the stewardship of Hans Irvine and Frenchman Charles Pierlot. An enduring dedication to sparkling excellence has been passed down by generations of winemaking greats ensuring the current range of sparkling wines both reflects the best of old traditions and modern innovation.
With the classic sparkling varietals of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from premium vineyards, Seppelt Salinger NV is a wine of great finesse and balance with a luscious creamy mouthfeel. Rich yet delicate, it has a fine bead and crisp refreshing finish.
“In 1890, Hans Irvine employed Frenchman Charles Pierlot from Champagne to craft some of Australia’s first méthode traditionnelle wines at Seppelt. 128 years later, all the complexity and refinement of this magnificent heritage is alive and well in this grand old estate, and you can taste and feel it even in its entry cuvée. Layers of complexity wound into its folds transcend its affordable price, packed with all the secondary personality of honey, ginger nut biscuits and mixed spice. A long finish of red apple, fig and strawberry fruit is underlined by softly balanced acidity and well-integrated dosage, completed with a creamy bead. It concludes a touch honeyed and will appreciate a good chill. The best Salinger NV I can recall.”
“Almost two-thirds pinot noir from the Adelaide Hills, Tumbarumba, Henty and the Yarra, aged on lees for 2 years’. Quince, citrus and well balanced acidity provide a wine that will have broad appeal for consumption in any context.”
“In its heyday, Salinger was considered one of Australia’s finest examples of sparkling wine, leading the way to the lofty recognition the category now enjoys. Blending the Champagne region’s traditional varieties pinot noir, chardonnay and pinot meunier, winemaker Adam Carnaby has created a wine crammed with exceptional bubbles.”
Very complex bouquet, toasty and nutty with vibrant citrus notes and creamy brioche aromas.
Opulent flavours drive this deep and complex palate, the powerful nutty components are all drawn together by fine acid structure, this natural balance makes for an extremely refreshing sparkling.
