Seppelt Drumborg Vineyard Riesling 2019
Halliday's 'Best Riesling of the Year 2021'!
This is it - Halliday's 'Best Riesling of the Year 2021'!
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.
"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.... 98pts" (Halliday).
