Seppelt planted its Drumborg site in 1964 to grow premium quality, cool climate fruit. A vineyard that experiences challenging weather conditions, Drumborg does not deliver every year, but when it does, the results are outstanding. A generous and refined Riesling, exhibiting purity of style, a lean, elegant structure and outstanding length. The bright lime and grapefruit flavours combine with a mineral acid backbone to create a wine of great elegance that is irresistible upon release, destined to add depths of flavour as it evolves.
Seppelt has pioneered vineyard plantings in far flung districts, always on the lookout for unique terrains which produce fine wines. Drumborg Vineyard remains one of the most southern sites on Australia's mainland. The yields reflect cool climate viticulture, the refreshing maritime winds and rich soils. Disease control and canopy management are always crucial to the vintage. Yields are often low but the traditionally meagre crops are of high to excellent quality. The focus during vinification is to maximise clean fruit intensity. This is achieved by transporting the fruit in small batches and processing quickly to prevent oxidisation, followed by a cool temperature controlled vinification.
Very pale straw with green tinges. Restrained lime and citrus with delicate floral notes. A classic Drumborg with delicate lime and citrus flavours supported by a steely mineral backbone and mouth watering acidity. Intensely focused yet exceptionally elegant and persistent. This purity of fruit is balanced with fine tight acidity to create a wine with a seamless palate, long in flavour and refinement. A Riesling that evolves gracefully.
