Strong red-purple; sophisticated winemaking produces a medium-bodied palate with a silky smooth texture to the plum and blackberry fruits and fine tannins; modern-day classic of this great label. Rating 94 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion Edition 2009

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Dark crimson with purple hues.

Aroma

There's depth and complexity on the nose with riper dark berry, cherry and raspberry aromas with cooler climate black pepper, spice, dark chocolate nuances and underlying, integrated cedary oak.

Palate

This medium to full bodied wine possesses the classically rich mid-palate and elegant structure of Central Victorian Shiraz. Flavours of spicy dark berry fruits and chocolate are supported by fine-grained tannins and cedary oak. The finish is long with a savoury complexity. Juicy acidity is approachable on release, yet gives the wine the necessary structure to go the distance in the cellar.

Cellaring Potential

To 2023.

Wine Background

Deriving its name from the picturesque Mount Chalambar near Great Western in central Victoria, Seppelt Chalambar Shiraz has an excellent pedigree, having been made since 1953. Originally crafted by the legendary Colin Preece and labelled as Chalambar Burgundy, this wine has become one of the most sought after Seppelt releases each year due to its consistency, quality and value.
