Riesling was the first variety planted at Drumborg in 1964. A perennial critic favourite, Seppelt Drumborg Vineyard Riesling, is one of Seppelt’s most sought-after whites due to its fruit purity, structure, flavour intensity, and remarkable cellaring potential. Traditional winemaking techniques, including cool tank fermentation followed by a short period of maturation on lees are used to bring about the purest expression of the vineyard.

Tasting Notes

When to drink
Will reward careful cellaring for 10+ years
On the nose
Waxy texture, a little oatmeal savouriness, pear and green apple flavours, a light juiciness.
On the palate
The palate displays innate purity with concentrated lemon, kaffir lime, delicate florals and exotic spice notes. This is a powerful wine with a chalky texture, excellent evenness, balance, and length with a backbone of mineral acid.
Product Notes
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.
