Grampians, Victoria   |    750ml   |    11.5%

Seppelt Drumborg Riesling is widely rated amongst the finest Australian Rieslings. Located 30 kilometres north-west of Portland, Victoria, the Drumborg vineyard is one of the coolest vineyards of mainland Australia.

The newly released 2019 Seppelt Drumborg Riesling is another top-line example of Drumborg's ability to produce flavoursome, elegant, yet an intensely focused style of Riesling.

"98 Points. Seppelt came close to abandoning this vineyard in Henty 30 or so years ago due to variability of the crop, a problem no more. The perfumed fragrance is wonderful, at once light and intense. Citrus and apple blossom notes are quite special, and illuminate the very long palate and aftertaste. $40. 11.5% alc. Drink by 2039. Screwcap." - James Halliday, Halliday Top 100 Wines Of 2019.

This individual vineyard wine from the unique Seppelt Drumborg vineyard in southern Victoria shows the value of premium quality, cool climate fruit. The Drumborg vineyard, 30 kilometres north-west of Portland, is one of the coolest on the Australian mainland. Occasionally, the quality of these grapes meet the very high standard required to release the wine under the Seppelt Drumborg Vineyard label.

The Seppelt Drumborg Riesling has achieved this standard. The quality highlights the region's ability to produce a fresh, elegant and refined style yet with intense flavours.
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 flavor and remarkable cellaring potential. Traditional winemaking techniques, including cool tank fermentation followed by a short period of maturation on less are used to bring about the purest expression of the vineyard. The 2019 vintage is a classic example of Drumborg Riesling representing the purity, balance and length inherent to this unique vineyard.
