Seppelt Chalambar Shiraz 2015

Seppelt Chalambar Shiraz 2015

Deriving its name from the picturesque Mount Chalambar near Great Western in central Victoria, Seppelt Chalambar Shiraz has an excellent pedigree, having been made since 1953. Originally crafted by the legendary Colin Preece and labelled as Chalambar Burgundy, this wine has become one of the most sought after Seppelt releases each year due to its consistency, quality and value. Sourced from the Grampians and Bendigo regions in Western and Central Victoria, there is a great balance of violets, pepper and spice from the Grampians fruit that provides contrasting elegance to the strength of Bendigo's dark plum fruit. Seppelt Chalambar Shiraz highlights the benefits of blending these distinctive wine regions. The result is a style that is approachable on release with the structure to age gracefully if carefully cellared.

The Wine Front – A wine I once quite judiciously cellared at one point. It’s a blend of Heathcote and Grampians. Heathcote bringing earthy tannin and savouriness to the body of ‘prettier’ Grampians fruit used here. This wine punches well above its weight. Superb release. Would make many people’s ‘best value wine of 2017’ kind of lists – one of those gems. Exotic spice, blue berries, mulberry and briary character. Really pretty almost floral-esque perfume. Succulent and medium weight, drinkability is through the roof, as is the spicy character of the wine, and flavours are set to just ripe berry fruitiness and black olive-like savoury-herbal character. Tannins are firm and fine, shapely and, again, succulent. There’s a feel of subtle dilution to the shape and flavours, but by-the-by in this very fine drink – showing almost a ‘pinosity’. This will cellar well too I suspect.
