Seppelt Chalambar Shiraz 2016

The 2016 vintage harnesses the individual strengths and distinct characteristics of spicy, floral grampians shiraz complemented by juicy Heathcote shiraz. In true chalambar style, it displays great depth of flavour, elegant structure and the potential to age gracefully for many years.

Deep red with purple hues.

Fragrant raspberry fruit, violets and savoury spice with a hint of liquorice.

Raspberry and mulberry fruits combined with spice and a mineral texture are supported by fine, powdery tannins and well integrated cedary oak.

"Chalambar Shiraz. Staple of Australian red wine drinking life. Made with grapes grown in the Grampians and Heathcote regions. This release is certainly not one to disappoint. Volume, style and complexity are all in a good place: flavours of red and black berries, healthy serves of cloves and black pepper, sandalwood and campfire notes, and just enough smoky oak to lend it some polish. It’s the kind of red you can thoroughly enjoy without ever getting overly excited, if that makes sense. It doesn’t scream high quality but its mix of ripe fruit and spice notes would be just the ticket, on most occasions."

Chalambar Shiraz was first crafted in 1953 by Australian winemaking legend Colin Preece. Named after the picturesque Mount Chalambar located in Victoria’s Grampians region, this wine is a multi-regional blend of premium shiraz parcels sourced from some of Victoria’s finest viticultural regions.

A dry winter was followed by a dry, warm spring, resulting in normal yields with good bunch size. Summer was dry and warm with generally fine conditions that led to concentrated wines with fine tannin structure.

Harvested in March 2016. Premium parcels of Shiraz from the Grampians and Heathcote were fermented on skins for an average of 8 days, then matured in a combination of 225 L French oak barriques (80%) and 3000 L seasoned French oak vats (20%) for 12 months. Overall 15% new French oak. Winery Notes
