James' Review

Seppelt once had dual, very different, claims to fame. The first was as Australia?s foremost producer of both white and red sparkling wine, the former led by Salinger, the latter by Show Sparkling and Original Sparkling Shiraz. The second claim, even more relevant to the Seppelt of today, was based on the small-volume superb red wines made by Colin Preece from the 1930s through to the early ?60s. These were ostensibly Great Western-sourced, but ? as the laws of the time allowed ? were often region, variety and vintage blends. Two of his labels (also of high quality) were Moyston and Chalambar, the latter recently revived. Preece would have been a child in a lolly shop if he?d had today?s viticultural resources to draw on, and would be quick to recognise the commitment of the winemakers and viticulturists to the supreme quality of today?s portfolio. At the time of going to press, it was highly likely that Ararat businessman Danile Ahchow will lease the cellar door and surrounds, including the underground drives. Seppelt will continue to keep the vineyards in the best possible condition. Exports to the UK, Europe and NZ.
