Although there are no precise records, Charles Pierlot from Hans Irvine’s cellars experimented with making some of Australia’s first ‘sparkling burgundy’ wines in 1893. 125 years later, this legacy continues, and today Seppelt enjoys a reputation for producing some of the world’s finest expressions.
Sourced from select vineyards throughout Victoria, Seppelt Original Sparkling Shiraz is a superbly balanced wine with vibrant, spicy shiraz fruit and a fine, creamy mousse. Serve chilled.
Vinified on skins in a combination of static and open-top fermenters followed by maturation in 70% stainless steel and 30% seasoned French oak for 12 months prior to secondary fermentation.
A blend of several vintages to add more complexity and depth and to produce a more consistent style every year with less influence from vintage variation.
