THE DRIVES SPARKLING NV (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’.
Composed of an elegant combination of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, this delicate sparkling wine exhibits refreshing fruit characters supported by subtle yeast characters and refreshing acid.
