Another fine wine from Seppelt. This Shiraz opens up with aromas of blackberry, cherry, stewed plum, raisins, cedar and spicy notes. On the palate, medium-full bodied, with layered spicy dark fruit, creamy oak texture, balance acidity and fine grained tannins. This Shiraz finish is long, spicy, with mouth caressing rich flavours and spiciness. Here is a well made, well balanced wine, which managed to achieve both power and elegance quit well. I have never been disappointed by Seppelt yet, and there Chalambar Shiraz 2008 is quit delicious, Strongly recommended.

Oz Shiraz for a person who turned away from over-the-top Oz Shiraz in the 90's (ie me).
Seppelt can thank WineAlign for a new fan...I would never have bothered trying it otherwise.
They should call this a Syrah, it does not have the sharp, fruit bomb taste of a typical Australian Shiraz. I would guess it was from the central coast in California. Subdued, with a hint of pepper and chocolate. It has a great start, but does not grow on me with the second glass (which may explain the excessively high ratings from the critics who only taste small amounts.) So serve this when you have guests to impress them, rather than drink half a bottle of it like I am doing now. But it is a very nice half bottle.
