Seppelt is celebrating the new vintage releases of its Icon and Drumborg collections and the 50th anniversary of its Drumborg Vineyard, which has continued to win accolades in recent weeks.

Although only just released, the 2014 Seppelt Drumborg Vineyard Riesling was the star of the show at the 2014 Ballarat Wine Show, taking three Trophies for Champion Wine of Show, Best Regional White Wine and Best Regional Other White Wine, in addition to a Gold Medal.  

In the week prior the Riesling was named Best Henty Regional Wine at the inaugural Vic100 Awards.

Seppelt’s new release wines comprise five elegant wines spanning three different vintages from three Victorian regions – the Grampians, Heathcote and Henty:

  • Seppelt Salinger Henty Vintage Cuvée 2011
  • Seppelt Drumborg Vineyard Chardonnay 2013
  • Seppelt Drumborg Vineyard Riesling 2014
  • Seppelt Drumborg Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013
  • Seppelt Mount Ida Shiraz 2012
  • Seppelt St Peters Shiraz 2012
