Seppelt are the proud winners of Halliday's 'Best Riesling of the Year 2021' for the 2019 vintage of this same wine. This 2012 Museum Release, is like a time capsule to what the current vintage will taste like in another several years time. Ideal for those who cannot wait that long... and considering the excellent price, why not?!
This wine forms part of Seppelt’s prized Drumborg Vineyard Range, sourced from the mature, cool-climate Seppelt Drumborg Vineyard in South-West Victoria’s Henty Region. Planted in 1964 by Karl Seppelt and swept by icy winds from the Southern Ocean, it is one of the southern-most vineyards of mainland Australia. Riesling was the first variety planted at Drumborg in 1964. This wine is one of Seppelt’s most sought-after whites due to its fruit purity, structure, intensity of flavour and remarkable cellaring potential.
"There seem to have been as many different label designs as vintages of this distinguished wine, but I do approve of this year's version, and hope that future marketers will leave well alone, particularly given that the wine's best years are at least a decade away. While its aromas and flavours are muted at this stage, the wine has great balance, line and length... 94pts" (Halliday).
