Seppeltsfield Great Terraced Vineyard Grenache 2020
The Seppeltsfield ‘Great Terraced Vineyard Grenache’ is a special release to celebrate their 170th Anniversary. Sourced from the iconic ‘Great Terraced Vineyard’ at our historic Seppeltsfield estate in the Barossa Valley.
The 2020 Great Terraced Vineyard Barossa Grenache, is a single vineyard wine. The vineyard consists of bush vine Grenache on the estate hillside, outcrop of ironstone, quartz and slate soil – that is highely prized. The wine was fermented in the historic 1888 Gravity Cellar, gently extracting colour and tannin, this wine is a pure and fine translation of the Great Terraced Vineyard at Seppeltsfield.
"Medium deep crimson. Attractive musky plum, strawberry pastille aromas with hints of sage and star anise. Medium bodied, supple and lacy textured with dark plum, strawberry, raspberry touch flavours, attractive mid-palate negroni like viscosity, fine plentiful loose-knit tannins and integrated fresh acidity. Finishes chalky firm, pure fruited and minerally. Delicious early to medium term wine. Drink now - 2028"
