SEPPELT - THE DRIVES SHIRAZ 2018 (Box of 6)
The Drives by Seppelt wines celebrates the superb regionality of selected Victorian Vineyards as well as the determination and vision of Seppelt’s founder Joseph Ernst Seppelt, a pioneer and visionary winemaker from the Victorian era, who planted the first Seppelt Vineyard in 1851. When Joseph Best discovered the ground on the site was made of a rock bed of decomposed granite, an easily dug, yet solid compound, he commissioned local gold miners to tunnel underground cellars to store his wines. These cellars are known to this day as ‘The Drives’.
Made predominantly from Shiraz grown in the Heathcote region of Central Victoria, this wine displays the classic regional characters of bright raspberry fruit and fine earthy tannins to form a very approachable and interesting Seppelt Shiraz.
