Seppelt Chalambar Shiraz 2015

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.
