Seppelt St. Peters Exceptional Vineyard Shiraz 2016

Vibrant deep red with crimson hues.

A complex, perfumed nose of blackberry fruit, spice and floral notes with toasty oak in the background.

The medium-bodied palate displays concentrated black fruits with spicy nutmeg and star anise characters supported by fine, velvety tannins and cedary oak. Subtle graphite and mineral textures combine with the fruit resulting in a complex and refined finish.

The flagship wine in the Seppelt portfolio, St. Peters is sourced from the finest and most intense fruit grown on our Great Western vineyards and is the ultimate expression of cool climate Grampians Shiraz.

The lineage of this iconic wine dates back to 1964 when Great Western Hermitage was first made. The wine is only made in exceptional years and is now called St. Peters after the name of our most historic block of Shiraz.

This wine, made in very small quantities, is a carefully balanced medium bodied wine that displays complex flavours reflective of the local terroir.

An outstanding release of St. Peters that reflects the superb 2016 vintage; this is a wine to enjoy upon release but will improve with many years of careful cellaring.

Select parcels off the Great Western Vineyard were fermented on skins (with partial whole bunch and whole berry) in open fermenters for 10 days. Followed by maturation for 14 months in a combination of 3000 L vat and 225 L barrels (with 40% New French oak). Winery Notes

Reviews & Accolades

2016 Vintage
"Sometimes the planets align, and today that happened. Seppelt St Peters 2016 was tasted alongside Bests Bin 0 Shiraz 2016. Great Western neighbours became neighbours in my glasses. A complex growing season saw a dry spell finished off with heavy rains, some heat spikes, and during the early stages of the season, frost was reported around the region. All sorts. This wine seems to have managed just fine, despite all that.

Beautiful perfume, silky medium weight, touches of spice and herbal detail, bright red berry fruit spectrum and a fine dusting of pepper. It’s a really lovely wine, glorious for its texture, brilliant for its length and elegance, though you could say it’s a riper flavour profile for a St Peters. Seamless flow and with good concentration, the glide across the palate is notable. It’s quite addictive to drink, indeed."

94 Points - Mike Bennie; The Wine Front, May 2018, Drink : 2018 - 2030

Previous Vintages
"Not entirely from the original St Peters vineyard; indeed, mostly not. From three vineyards, St Peters, Imperial and a (comparatively) newer vineyard, though all three vineyards are fully mature. It sees 40% new oak though some of this oak is large format vats. 1100 cases. Exquisite release. Meat, subtle pepper, black cherry, plum. Tight, like a tiger, but expresses enough even in its youth to have you hooked. Pure silk. Floral highlights. Graphite. Toasted cedarwood. Entirely seductive but poise is its middle name. Ripping. Totally ripping."
96 Points - Campbell Mattinson; The Wine Front

"Sourced from the 90-year-old block adjacent to the winery and from other old plantings in the region; open-fermented and hand-plunged, matured in new and used French barriques for 14 months. The black fruit iron fist in the flowery, spicy velvet glove will guarantee the wine a prodigiously long life; it has the innate balance and length the region can provide like few others."
97 Points - James Halliday Wine Companion
