SEPPELTSFIELD CELEBRATES 170TH ANNIVERSARY WITH GREAT TERRACED VINEYARD GRENACHE LUXURY RELEASE’

Seppeltsfield Wine 2020 Grenache

Seppeltsfield is one of Australia’s most historic wineries, established in the Barossa in 1851 and this year celebrating their 170th Anniversary.

Seppeltsfield has long been internationally renowned for its treasure trove of fortified wines, highlighted by the Centennial Collection – the world’s only unbroken lineage of single vintage Tawny dating back to 1878. Now, the star is shining on the 170-year-old estate’s new chapter, an expanding range of still wines, only possible since recently gaining full ownership of its trademark in 2017. In February 2018, Seppeltsfield launched its contemporary new brand identity. The inspiration behind this new label was taken from within the estate, with the earliest insignia reinstated – the crown and star trademark from 1877, together with cues such as the proprietary blue and label shape found on 19th century craft liquor bottles. 

Today, Seppeltsfield celebrate the unveiling of their annual luxury collection of wines, with a significant moment, the launch of a special 170th Anniversary release from the Barossa estate’s icon vineyard – 2020 Great Terraced Vineyard Barossa Grenache. The Great Terraced Vineyard consists of bush vine Grenache and was originally planted in 1855 and re-planted in contoured rows to follow the natural shape of the land, commencing in 1958. Original cuttings were vigorously selected to ensure the highest possible quality. The wine was fermented in the historic 1888 Gravity Cellar, gently extracting colour and tannin, resulting in a pure and fine translation of the Great Terraced Vineyard. 

In addition, Seppeltsfield have also released the follow up vintages to the ‘Grounds’ range – single vineyard Barossa Shiraz expressions. As Seppeltsfield’s interpretation of Barossa terroir, the ‘Grounds’ releases look to apply a beguiling simplicity for what in European terms is often a complicated and complex idea of the relationship between geography, geology, climate and history. The range takes inspiration from the Barossa Grounds project – a comprehensive study of the district’s sub-regionality. Led by the Barossa Grape & Wine Association, the project brings together winemakers, grape growers and soil and climatic science experts, to evaluate and identify the variations in Shiraz wine expression across the various parishes of the region. There is a consistent approach to winemaking for the ‘Grounds’ range – fermented through the historic 1888 Gravity Cellar and matured in new and seasoned French oak hogsheads for 14 months. 

Seppeltsfield’s 2019 vintage bottlings include the first release of  ‘The Northing’ Barossa Shiraz, sourced from a single vineyard from the Marananga parish of the Northern Grounds, ‘The Easting’ Barossa Shiraz, sourced from the Garden of Eden Vineyard in Eden Valley, as well as the ‘The Westing’ Barossa Shiraz, from V Block in the Western Barossa Grounds. Expect to see wines released from all four points of the compass in future vintages. 

Further, Seppeltsfield’s ‘Bench Blends’ new vintages are also available. The ‘Bench Blends’ range is centred on the winemaking art of ‘assemblage’, with the craft combining the sensory ability with the artistic and individual expression of the winemakers – the ambition to achieve a final blend that is greater than the sums of its varietal parts. Red varietal blends carry an ‘EC’ (East Cellar) number which were first released by Seppeltsfield’s founding family in the 1960s and formed the inspiration for the range.

There are two ‘Bench Blends’ wines in the range, including the 2020 ‘No. EC403’ Barossa Grenache, Shiraz, Mataro, a traditional and well-loved blend, and in this instance – Grenache was sourced from the estate’s iconic Great Terraced Vineyard and is the dominant varietal. Alongside ‘No. EC403’ is a more contemporary expression of traditional Portuguese varieties – 2020 ‘No. EC3’ Barossa Tinta Cao, Tinta Amarela, Touriga

Fiona Donald, Chief Winemaker, said “At Seppeltsfield, our collection of wines reflect 170 years of history in the Barossa, but also our future endeavours. Our ambition is to match our reputation for fortified wines with that of our luxury still wine collection. Our special 170th Anniversary release, the 2020 Great Terraced Vineyard Barossa Grenache, creates a moment that will be remembered for years to come. Sourced from our iconic Great Terraced Vineyard on the Estate, which has historically been used for the production of fortified wines, this contemporary still wine is a pure and fine translation of the vineyard. It’s a truly exciting new chapter in the Estates’ journey”. 

The Seppeltsfield Winemaking team has also expanded – Henry Slattery joins with over six years winemaking experience in the Barossa, and having completed both an Undergraduate degree in Agricultural science at the University of Melbourne and Masters in Oenology at the University of Adelaide. The Winemaking team now consists of Warren Randall (Executive Chairman and Proprietor), Fiona Donald (Chief Winemaker), Charlie Seppelt (Senior Winemaker), Matthew Pick (Senior Winemaker), Henry Slattery (Winemaker) and Kingsley Fuller (Group Viticulturist). 

The Seppeltsfield luxury collection of wines is available at the Seppeltsfield Cellar Door in the Barossa or via our Seppeltsfield Online Shop  and can be found only in fine wine retailers and on premise nationally.

‘Seppeltsfield are shaking up Tasting Australia in 2021’

Seppeltsfield Partnering with Tasting Australia

For the first time this year, Seppeltsfield are partnering with Australia’s premier food and drink festival, Tasting Australia 2021, presented by RAA Travel.

To celebrate this collaboration, you can indulge in a classic cocktail with a twist – the traditional Espresso Martini will be mixed with Seppeltsfield’s house style fortified wine – Para Grand Tawny (with an average age of 10 Years Old). Fittingly remixed as an ‘Espresso Martawny’, this bootleg cocktail takes the bittersweet flavours to a new level of complexity.

The heart and soul of the Seppeltsfield fortified wine range is the Para Tawny Collection – inspired by a combination of Shiraz, Grenache and Mouvedre (red) grapes, and the ‘fortified’ component comes from brandy spirit, which is added during fermentation. The Seppeltsfield wine ages in old oak barrels, where it slowly evaporates and oxidises, eventually turning into a beautiful mahogany-amber colour Tawny. Para has been synonymous with luxurious fortified wine for over a century, with the iconic insignia, being the name of the river that meanders through the Barossa.

The team at Seppeltsfield and destination restaurant on the estate, FINO, have worked in collaboration to reimagine this concoction.

Nigel Thiele, Brand Ambassador, Seppeltsfield said “We are inspiring a fortified renaissance by serving traditional wines, such as our Para Grand Tawny, in a modern and contemporary way – what’s old is new again. Our Espresso Martawny is characterised by its luscious texture, with flavours of roasted nut praline, brandied raisins and crème brulee”.

Sharon Romeo, Proprietor, FINO at Seppeltsfield added “The Para Grand Tawny perfectly complements the hedonistic aromas and flavours of our quality, fresh brewed espresso. Along with flavour complexity, the viscosity of the Grand Tawny also assists the espresso crema form neatly on top of the glass, even after vigorous shaking”.

The Seppeltsfield Espresso Martawny will be available at the East End Cellars Cocktail Bar, located in Town Square at Tasting Australia, throughout the duration of the festival (30 April – 9 May 2021). Espresso Martawny $20 per serving.

Seppeltsfield will also be hosting a “Dark and Delicious” Masterclass – Fortified Wines matched with Haigh’s Chocolate, hosted by Executive Chairman and Proprietor, Warren Randall and Haigh’s Head Chocolatier, Ben Kolly.

‘SEPPELTSFIELD LAUNCH 1921 100 YEAR OLD PARA VINTAGE TAWNY AND CELEBRATE 170TH ANNIVERSARY YEAR’

Seppeltsfield 1921 100 Year Old Para Vintage Tawny

Seppeltsfield was established in 1851 by Joseph Seppelt and is one of the oldest wineries in Australia. 

Today, Seppeltsfield celebrate the unveiling of one of Australia’s most significant fortified wines, with the 1921 100 Year Old Para Vintage Tawny, also coinciding with an important anniversary of 170 years of the history of the Seppeltsfield estate. On this day, 20th February 1851, the Seppelt family moved into the family homestead.

This is the 44TH consecutive 100 Year Old Vintage Tawny to be released from the historic 1878 Centennial Cellar – seeing 100 Summers and Winters maturing in oak. This continues the lineage of releases first conceived by Oscar Benno Seppelt in 1878, now commonly known as the ‘jewel in the crown’ at Seppeltsfield.

Andrew Caillard Master of Wine describes the 1921 100 Year Old Para Vintage Tawny:

“Marmalade, treacle, molasses, liquorice, mahogany, Indian spices, tobacco, dark chocolate, country gardens, dried raisins, dates and grilled nuts and everything in between give a sense of its complexity and proportions.   It is an endless sensory kaleidoscope that changes with air.  When you taste this 1921 Para you only need a thimble to understand its power, concentration and layered complexity”.

“Seppeltsfield 100 Year Old Para Vintage Tawny is rated as ‘Exceptional’ in the Langton’s Classification of Australian Wine, reflecting its First Growth status and historic narrative. It belongs to a contiguous collection of fortified wine vintages that goes back to 1878 and is one of the most important fragments of Australia’s 19th century colonial history” said Mr Caillard.

Listen to the full Tasting Podcast below.

The release will be celebrated by the Barossa Valley Wine Region, in a special presentation at the 2021 Declaration of Vintage Celebrations, Sunday 21st February 2021.

To accompany this year’s release, Seppeltsfield have once again, partnered with Master of Wine, Andrew Caillard and Producer of The Grape Underground, Christophe Priddle on a tasting note podcast, revealing what it is like to taste this 1921 100 Year Old fortified wine, a private and unique experience Seppeltsfield offers to guests in the iconic Centennial Cellar.

Alongside the 1921 100 Year Old Para Vintage Tawny release, Seppeltsfield also celebrate the official release of the 1981 40-Year-Old Para Vintage Tawny.

The 1921 100 Year Old Para Vintage Tawny and 1981 40-Year-Old Para Vintage Tawny have limited availability, in both the 375ml and 100ml formats.

The fortified wine bottles are hand filled to order, individually numbered and authenticated for collection purposes. They are presented in Jarrah timber gift boxes and the certificate can be personalised accordingly.

‘MAKE A PITSTOP AT OCTEINE COFFEE AT SEPPELTSFIELD AND REFUEL YOUR ENGINES’

Seppeltsfield – the crown of the Barossa and globally recognised tourism destination is home to an award-winning Cellar Door, FINO restaurant, Jam Factory Craft and Design Studios, Vasse Virgin Skin Care and Segway Sensation SA.

 

Today, we see, the newest addition to the Seppeltsfield village open the doors, Octeine Coffee – the name Octeine represents what fuels human and machine to experience adventure: Octane x Caffeine = Octeine.

 

Octeine is more than coffee – it’s an outdoor activity and adventure brand. Owner and Entrepreneur Pete Mann said ‘We love the outdoors, we love adventure, and we love to share our experiences, hence the opportunity to open Octeine Coffee at Seppeltsfield, was a natural fit and truly a once in a lifetime opportunity to strategically broaden our footprint’.

 

Octeine Coffee at Seppeltsfield’s signature offering will be the ‘Single Origin Coffee Tasting Flight’ – the same coffee, but in three different expressions – Espresso, Espresso with Milk and Filtered. The coffee variety offered on the tasting flight will be seasonally driven. The coffee is sourced from around the world then roasted and blended at Octeine’s South Australia roastery.

 

The food philosophy is built on fresh, healthy, fun and on the go, sourced locally where possible, using raw ingredients. The menu includes smoothies (wholefood and protein), acai bowls, overnight oats, smashed avocado and raw treats. And of course, Seppeltsfield Wines, Barossa Cider Co. and local beer will be on offer.

 

Octeine Coffee was founded in March 2019 by Pete Mann, with the first venture in Kent Town. Former teacher, Pete spent 2018 between De Groot Coffee Co. at Port Elliot and Seafaring Fools at Glenelg South, and took a specialist coffee roasting course at Aunty Peg’s at Proud Mary’s, where he learned the art of coffee roasting and making, respectively. He was soon roasting his own coffee under the Octeine label and supplying Acai Bar, Bomdia Bowls at Glenelg. Since then, expanding Octeine Coffee to a hole in the wall in the Adelaide CBD and a coffee cart in Torrensville, as well as selling Octeine beans via the online store.

 

Seppeltsfield is privately owned by Executive Chairman and Entrepreneur Warren Randall, who has been responsible for bringing the Seppeltsfield Village back to life, restoring the 1888 Gravity Cellar and turning this into a world class tourism destination and fine wine brand.

 

Warren Randall said, ‘We are thrilled to work in partnership with likeminded businesses and people. Octeine Coffee will bring a new dimension to the Seppeltsfield Village and the Barossa, catering for visitors looking to make a pitstop and rufuel their engines, whilst they explore all the region has to offer”.

 

“Working with fellow Entrepreneur Pete Mann and his thriving Octeine Coffee business has been a pleasure and we look forward to a strong and successful future together here at Seppeltsfield”.

 

Seppeltsfield was recognised in the World’s Best Vineyards in 2019, coming in at number 47.

 

Octeine Coffee at Seppeltsfield will be open 7 days a week: weekdays 8.30am – 3.30pm, weekends 10am – 5pm.

Inspiration behind Oscar Seppeltsfield

The approach to design was to understand and capture what makes Seppeltsfield Wines and the wider Barossa region such a unique part of South Australia. The team at Intro committed themselves to create a contemporary, generational piece of architecture which will catalyse conversations for decades that come. The building has been sculpted so it appears as if it emerges from the land. The design remains cognisant of its rural context so that when viewed from a distance, its upper contracting silhouette is not dissimilar to a silo, water tower, or wine tank. 

 

The design philosophy was borne from the art of barrel-making, particularly the process of the curvature and manipulation of the stave. This is where the conceptual framework of the deconstructed wine barrel is expressed – through contrasting materials and transparencies throughout the series of contorted staves arising from the vineyard. The proposed design uses a two-fold approach to ground the building in its place.  The building responds to its rural setting by incorporating two distinct design elements of contrasting materiality. The first is the base of the building which features stone and other locally sourced materials typical of the locality.  The second and upper element complements the landscape with its sweeping yet restrained form and aesthetic.

Seppeltsfield bolsters winemaking team and celebrate with the launch of luxury releases.

Seppeltsfield Wine making team

Seppeltsfield, one of Australia’s most iconic wineries, today unveiled their new winemaking team and celebrate with a collection of luxury wines – across two new tiers.

 

Seppeltsfield has long been internationally renowned for its treasure trove of fortified wines, highlighted by the Centennial Collection – the world’s only unbroken lineage of single vintage Tawny dating back to 1878. Now, the star is starting to shine on the 169-year-old estate’s new chapter, an expanding range of contemporary Barossa still wines, only possible since recently gaining full ownership of its trademark in 2017.

 

The new winemaking team behind the emergence of Seppeltsfield’s still wine range, includes Warren Randall, Fiona Donald, Charlie Seppelt, Matthew Pick and Kingsley Fuller.

 

The team is led by Len Evans Tutorial scholar and Baron of the Barossa, Fiona Donald, as Chief Winemaker, who has over thirty years’ experience, and is celebrating her eleventh vintage at Seppeltsfield this year. More recently joining Fiona is Senior Winemaker and fifth generation of Seppeltsfield’s founding family, Charlie Seppelt. Charlie has completed thirty vintages to date domestically and internationally, and is also a Len Evans Tutorial Scholar. Alongside Fiona and Charlie is Senior Winemaker, Matthew Pick, coming from a strong pedigree working for leading wineries in both Australia and Austria.

 

Spearheaded by Warren Randall, Seppeltsfield – Executive Chairman and Proprietor, with over forty-three years of winemaking experience globally. Warren is one of Australia’s most awarded winemakers, having redefined Australia’s sparkling wine landscape in the 1980s and recognised with the Len Evans Award in 2015.

 

Working intrinsically with the Seppeltsfield winemakers is Group Viticulturist, Kingsley Fuller. Kingsley oversees Seppeltsfield’s unparalleled Barossa vineyard holdings – the largest single cache of luxury plantings in the region.

 

Seppeltsfield’s winemaking philosophy is guided by four elements, which reflect both the history and the future endeavours. The wines are handcrafted ultimately for enjoyment, but with an eye on ageability. The unique 1888 Gravity Cellar plays a significant role in the style of many bottlings, and for the still wines, celebrating the re-imagining of traditional fortified varietals. These elements are grounded in a belief of place over person. With the primary aspiration to translate the character of vineyard sites – and each season – into the wines themselves.

 

In February 2018, Seppeltsfield launched its contemporary new brand identity, together with the inaugural ‘Village’ tier of still wines. The inspiration behind this new label was taken from within the estate, with the earliest insignia reinstated – crown and star trademark from 1877, together with cues such as the proprietary blue and label shape found on 19th century craft liquor bottles.

 

Today, we see two tiers of luxury red wines – signaling Seppeltsfield’s commitment towards a future luxury still wine collection, equaling its reputation for fortifieds. The first new tier, described as ‘Bench Blends’, is centred on the winemaking art of ‘assemblage’. The craft combines sensory ability with the artistic and individual expression of the winemaker – the ambition to achieve a final blend that is greater than the sums of its varietal parts.

The ‘Bench Blends’ tier includes the 2018 ‘No. EC4’ Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz, an expression of the definitive Australian red varietal blend. Alongside ‘No. EC4’ is a more contemporary expression of traditional Portuguese varieties – 2019 ‘No. EC3’ Barossa Tinta Cao, Tinta Amarela, Touriga. Red varietal blends carry an ‘EC’ (East Cellar) number which were first released by Seppeltsfield’s founding family in the 1960s and formed the inspiration for the range.

 

A step up from ‘Bench Blends’, is the ‘Grounds’ range – single vineyard Barossa Shiraz expressions. As Seppeltsfield’s interpretation of Barossa terroir, the ‘Grounds’ releases look to apply a beguiling simplicity for what in European terms is often complicated and complex idea of the relationship between geography, geology, climate and history.

The range takes inspiration from the Barossa Grounds project – a comprehensive study of the district’s sub-regionality. Led by the Barossa Grape & Wine Association, the project brings together winemakers, grape growers and soil and climatic science experts, to evaluate and identify the variations in Shiraz wine expression across the various parishes of the region.


Seppeltsfield’s 2018 vintage bottlings include ‘The Easting’ Barossa Shiraz, and ‘The Westing’ Barossa Shiraz, from estate-owned vineyards in Eden Valley, the Barossa’s high country in the East, and Western Barossa grounds. Expect to see wines released from four points of the compass in future vintages.

 

Fiona Donald, Chief Winemaker, said “It is an exciting time at Seppeltsfield as we progressively expand our still wine collection upward, each tier and wine having a clear purpose and reflective of our philosophy. We have the best combination of highly passionate people, superior vineyard holdings, our unique 1888 Gravity Cellar and history unlike no other. What’s more, a dynamic tourism precinct in the Barossa for visitors to come and discover our collection of wines and learn about our story”.

Seppeltsfield has confirmed a “Seppeltsfield Icon Program” is underway, with releases set to be unveiled over the coming years.

 

The Seppeltsfield luxury collection of wines are available at the Seppeltsfield Cellar Door in the Barossa or via Seppeltsfield.com.au and can be found only in fine wine retailers and on-premise nationally.

 

The ‘Grounds’ tier is exclusive in retail to Seppeltsfield Cellar Door and Langton’s.
