St Peters should be a bigger Aussie icon shiraz than it is. It's seriously underrated against all the other flagship shiraz wines, but this will hold it's own. From a cracking year, it shows aromas of red fruits, plums, pepper spice and appealing deli-meats on the nose. The palate is medium-bodied, elegant and juicy, with more berries and pepper flavours, minty and coffee licks, a solid line of fine tannins, and a tight, succulent finish that just won;t quit. Stick some in the cellar and watch it keep giving over the next decade!
The flagship wine in the Seppelt portfolio, St Peters is sourced from the finest and most intense estate grown fruit and is the ultimate expression of cool climate Grampians Shiraz. The lineage of this iconic wine dates back to 1964 when Great Western Hermitage was first made. The wine is only made in exceptional years and is now called St Peters after the name of our most historic block of Shiraz.
This wine, made in very small quantities, is a carefully balanced medium bodied wine that displays complex flavours reflective of the local terroir. There are distinctive regional Shiraz characters and this wine will age gracefully with careful long term cellaring.
