St Peters 2020 Shiraz – Released in small quantities and only in exceptional years, St Peters is Seppelt’s flagship Shiraz, epitomizing the distinctive style and pedigree of Grampians Shiraz. This iconic wine’s lineage dates back to 1964 when it was first known as ‘Great Western Hermitage’. Since 1998, it has been named St Peters, honouring the first vineyard planted in the region. Today, St Peters is crafted from the finest and most intense fruit from our best Great Western vineyard blocks. For the 2020 vintage, this includes select parcels from the Bass and Arrawatta blocks.

Select parcels from the Great Western Vineyard were fermented on skins (with partial whole bunch and whole berry) in open fermenters for 7-10 days, followed by maturation for 14 months in a combination of 3000 L vat, 500L Puncheons and 225 L French Oak barrels – 20% new oak overall.
Deep red with crimson hues.
Classically regional with lifted blueberry and blackberry fruit, violets, flint and a touch of freshly cracked black pepper
Medium-bodied with luscious open weaved sweet blueberry fruit and peppery spice on the mid palate. Definitive St Peters graphite tannins provide an incredible savoury, slatey and gravelly length to the back end of this wine. Subtle toasty, charry oak and a touch of gunflint reduction provides extra depth to what is a restrained yet powerful wine.
Great Western, Grampians
A generally wet winter and dry spring/summer characterized by seesawing temperature extremes throughout the season with very windy conditions throughout spring and particularly around flowering. Average yields with good quality, regionally definitive wines
