2020 Seppeltsfield Grenache, Barossa Valley, Australia
ABOUT THIS WINE
Seppeltsfield Barossa Grenache wine was sourced from Seppeltsfield plantings of Grenache on the western ridge of the Barossa.
Sourced from the Seppeltsfield plantings of Grenache on the western ridge, this red wine is joven in style and medium-bodied, with a core of pure fruit and lithe tannin.
Seppeltsfield Barossa Grenache is made in a ‘joven’ style – released young and without any oak maturation. The Grenache was vinified through the historic 1888 Gravity Cellar – which is highly regarded for its small-batch format and gentle maceration. Built into the hillside on a series of terraces, gravity guides the flow of fruit down through the winery to deliver gentle extraction of colour, flavour and tannin.

ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
Seppeltsfield was established in the Barossa Valley by Joseph and Johanna Seppelt just 15 years after the European settlement of South Australia. Steeped in rich Barossan heritage, the estate is considered a true national treasure which helped shape the history of the Australian wine industry.
Seppeltsfield’s winemaking philosophy is guided by four elements, which reflect both our history and our future endeavors. Our wines are handcrafted ultimately for enjoyment but with an eye on age-ability. Our unique 1888 Gravity Cellar plays a significant role in the style of many of our bottlings, and for our still wines, we celebrate the reimagining of traditional fortified varietals. These elements are grounded in a belief of place over the person. Our winemaking team’s primary aspiration is to translate the character of our vineyard sites and each season – in our wines themselves.
