Seppeltsfield Wines have taken out the prestigious Barossa Wine Show award for Best 2019 Red Wine, Class 19 – The Seam Trophy, as well as a Gold Medal and 96 points for the 2019 Barossa Grenache.
Fiona Donald, Senior Winemaker explains “Our 2019 Seppeltsfield Barossa Grenache is hand-picked from our iconic Great Terraced Vineyard on the estate hillside. This comprises old bush vine Grenache plantings that are over 60 years of age. The joven style allows the fruit to shine and delivers a wine with brightness, substance and drinkability”.
Further to this, the 2019 Seppeltsfield Mataro received a Gold Medal and 95 points, with the 2019 Barossa Vermentino and 2017 Barossa Shiraz both being awarded Silver Medals.
The annual Barossa Wine Show, first held in 1977, is seen as a showpiece of the region’s very best wines in any given year.
The wines must be made in Barossa from a minimum of 85% Barossa grapes. The judging panel includes winemakers, wine media and professional judges from around Australia and overseas.
The Seppeltsfield Village range of wines (RRP $25) are available from Seppeltsfield Cellar Door, fine wine retailers, and through the online store at www.seppeltsfield.como.au
