With a proud and priceless legacy dating back to 1851, Seppeltsfield is Australia's iconic wine estate. Seppeltsfield was established by Joseph and Johanna Seppelt just 15 years after the European settlement of South Australia. One of the largest and most modern wineries in the world of its time, Seppeltsfield went on to thrive as an artisan community throughout the early 1900's. Steeped in rich Barossan heritage, the estate is considered a true national treasure which helped shape the history of the Australian wine industry.
As a new dawn rises over Seppeltsfield, our passion is to return the estate to its artisan roots and continue the enduring legacy of the
Seppeltsfield's history with tonic wines originated in the 1800s, where spirit-strengthened 'elixirs' - often prescribed by hospitals and pharmacists - promised to refresh, exhilarate, heal and nourish. Whilst we can no longer claim to cure aliments, the Seppeltsfield Elixir Collection does promise you stimulation and enjoyment.
Elixir II Irresistibly Indigo Liqueur Shiraz is a twist on the traditional estate fortified styles. Made using Barossa Shiraz, the wine is a fresh, fragrant, black-fruited style in a similar mould to that of a Ruby port. With no oak maturation, the wine is best enjoyed young.
The Shiraz grapes for Indigo Liqueur are crushed and fermented on skins, with the fermentation then stopped by fortifying with low strength brandy spirit. This wine is not matured in oak barrels, rather, promptly bottled to maximise its vibrant colour and fresh, fruity character.
