Seppelt Wines launches 2022 Luxury Collection

The new Seppelt Luxury Collection comprises eight wines sourced from across Victoria’s Grampians, Heathcote and Henty regions.

Crafted by senior winemaker Clare Dry, who joined Seppelt in 2020, the Collection is led by the 2020 St Peters Grampians Shiraz.

St Peters is sourced from the finest and most intense fruit from the Great Western Vineyard, with superb ageing potential.

Six wines follow from the 2021 vintage, including four from Seppelt’s Drumborg Vineyard, one of the southernmost vineyards in mainland Australia. The Collection is completed by the new release of Salinger Vintage Cuvée, one of Seppelt’s ever-popular sparkling wines.

“Each of the wines from this year’s Collection has a story to tell, from the elegance of St Peters to the ethereal Drumborg reds, the release is a showcase of our vineyards, viticulture and winemaking,” says Dry.

“The Drumborg wines in particular were a thrill to make, courtesy of a sensational vintage in 2021. Fruit was picked at optimum conditions, delivering parcels that were incredibly flavoursome, balanced and pure.

“The Chardonnay is a real pride point as I’ve reworked the style significantly, creating a delicate wine which I believe captures the purity and intensity of the Drumborg site.”

The release also includes the 2021 Chalambar Grampians & Heathcote Shiraz, the 2021 Jaluka Henty Chardonnay and the 2017 Salinger Vintage Cuvée.

“As a label renowned for our sparkling heritage, it’s a joy to release a new vintage of Salinger, the perfect follow on from the 2015, which recently received the Sparkling Wine Trophy at the 2021 National Wine Show of Australia,” says Dry.
