Seppeltsfield Watervale Riesling
The wine itself has fresh nose of fresh lime and jasmine blossom, with a fresh and zingy mouthfeel and fresh lime, lychee, and spice. A lovely grippy minerality on the tongue gives it an extra dimension as it flows into a long, fresh finish.
Established in 1851 by Joseph Seppelt, the winery flourished in the 20th century as part of the Seppelt family's expanding interests in the liquor industry, which grew to include vineyards and wineries across various Australian regions. The Seppelts maintained ownership until 1985, when the winery entered a period of corporate ownership which lasted until 2007. Seppeltsfield is now owned by Warren Randall - a qualified viticulturist and winemaker who worked for the Seppelt family during the 1980s. Randall has led a Seppeltsfield renaissance by developing its vineyard holdings on the 'Western Ridge' of the Barossa Valley and restoring the winery's heritage listed buildings, including the prized 1888 Gravity Cellar.
