    Vineyard

    The 2016 Seppeltsfield Barossa Shiraz is our foundation-level, representing the estate's diverse holding of vineyards that cross the region's Western ridge, from the North to Southern grounds. Generations of grape growers have farmed this variety in the region since the 1840s - the complex combination of varying geology, geography and climate interacting to express its qualities in manner of ways, from perfumed and elegant to rich and generous. Definitively however, Barossa Shiraz is not simply a translation of grape or grounds; it also represents a tapestry of the region's history, culture and pioneering endeavour. With a close eye on what the growing season has provided, Seppeltsfield's vineyards are considered at individual block level for their suitability of our 'village' release. Intensive sampling is undertaken as the fruit approaches ripening maturity, to ensure optimal harvest timing.

    Winemaking

    The 2016 Barossa Shiraz was vinified through the historic 1888 Gravity Cellar. Built into the hillside on a series of terraces, gravity guides the flow of fruit down through the winery to deliver gentle extraction of colour, flavour and tannin. The Shiraz was fermented in open fermenters and matured with moderate French oak influence.
