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.
