Overview

Sourced from the cool climate Grampians and warmer Bendigo regions in Western and Central Victoria, there is a great balance of violets, pepper and spice from the Grampians fruit that provides contrasting elegance to the strength of Bendigo's dark plum fruit. Seppelt Chalambar Shiraz highlights the benefits of blending these distinctive wine regions.

Expert Reviews

Deep crimson-purple; the expressive black fruits and spices of the bouquet are followed by a full-bodied palate, with fruit, oak and tannins all having their say, but none obscuring the others. Will coast through two decades at least. Grampians/Bendigo. To 2030. Rating 95 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion Edition 2011

Colour

Deep, dark red.

Aroma

An intense and complex nose of dark berry aromas, sweet spice and dark chocolate nuances with underlying, integrated cedary oak.

Palate

This dense medium to full bodied wine has fleshy palate weight with flavours of spicy dark berry fruits and chocolate, supported by velvety textural tannins and cedary oak. The finish is long with a savoury complexity.

To 2030.
