Seppelt St Peters Grampians Shiraz 2012
Released in exceptional years and grown on schist and granite soils, this Shiraz is matured in oak for fourteen months in a mix of new and old oak.
Pure and plush, there is significant freakin' wow factor here.
Aromas of raspberry, dark cherry, white pepper and a little smokey action. The fruit starts bright and finishes with a beefy kick just as it rolls out. Terrifically balanced and seductive, there's no doubting the granite minerality which hides in the background peeking through ever so cheekily. Dusty tannins finish off a most impressive wine.
Shop around online and you can do up to $20 better than the RRP.
Feed this to me through a drip. Outstanding stuff.
