Seppeltsfield was established in the Barossa Valley by Joseph and Johanna Seppeltsfield in 1850,  just 15 years after the European settlement of South Australia. Steeped in tradition, the estate is considered a national treasure that was instrumental in shaping the history of Australian wine.

The Grenache is made in a joven style- released young and without any oak maturation and vinified through the historic 1888 Gravity Cellar, highly regarded for its small batch format and gentle maceration. The gravity cellar is built into the hillside on a series of terraces and gravity guides the flow of fruit down to the winery to deliver gentle extraction of color, flavor, and tannins.

The wine bursts with flavors of raspberry, blackberry with aromas of dark cherries,musk, and all spice. There is a sweet core of ripe fruit and dried herbs. Still very young and primal this beauty surprisingly has aging potential but drinks very well now.

Shiraz is still THE WINE from Australia but Grenache is hard on its heels!
