Seppeltsfield ‘No. EC403’ Barossa GSM 2020
- Rich, full-bodied
If you’ve ever been to the Seppeltsfield winery, you’ll know that to stand amongst the 2000 palm trees and 144 year old gravity cellar is to know history. The ‘EC’ series is a premium range that speaks of the Seppeltsfield legacy. 403 is a blend of everyone’s favourite trio: grenache, shiraz and mataro; and they’re speaking loudly of their Barossa heritage. The conversation is all about depth of flavour, richness on the palate, and the long finish that will linger with you like a sweet childhood memory. Unsurprisingly, this is pretty great juice.

“Grenache (45%) ex Great Terraced Vineyard, shiraz (30%) ex 2 parcels from the estate's western and southern parts of the Valley, the mataro (25%) ex a grower's vineyard on the Western Ridge. Deeply coloured; the expressive bouquet is a delight, as is the depth of the black berry and cherry flavours on the palate, all achieved with great balance. Barossa Valley on its best behaviour.”

Confusingly, the Barossa Zone (aka 'Barossa') encompasses the Eden and Barossa Valley regions (the word 'Valley' being the key differentiator). If you don't want all your eggs in one basket, or all your shiraz from one region, this is one solid way to get some complexity of layers (of course, it's not all about shiraz - ha! Yes it is). Despite being about the same area, Eden Valley only has about 20% of the area under vine that its more famous neighbour manages. But it's no surprise that you'll find many of the big and boutique players sourcing their most expensive wines from a little higher than the Barossa Valley floor. So if you see a wine labelled as 'Barossa', you might just be looking at something that extra bit special.
