Overview

Overview

During 150 years of winemaking, Seppelt has built a reputation of innovation and dedication to quality. The Seppelt approach is to harness the strength and characteristics of each region and create wines which are varietally and regionally expressive– wines with a ‘sense of place’.

The Henty district in far south-western Victoria has a long history of producing finely structured cool climate varietals with unique regional character. Gruner Veltliner, an aromatic white variety originating from some of the coolest countries in Europe, is perfectly suited to this environment. The 2018 vintage has produced a wine with perfumed aromatics and a textured palate, superbly balanced with a long finish.

James Halliday

“New to Henty, with a perfumed bouquet delivering a full helping of white pepper, spice and pear picked up by the linear palate. It is long, intense, citrus-tinged, and has real purpose. The very cool climate is the key to an exciting wine.”

Viticulture

Viticulture

A cool winter with good early rainfall was followed by warm, dry spring conditions, resulting in excellent fruit set. Summer temperatures were average to warm, with persistent fine conditions and little rain, resulting in above-average yields and exceptional quality.
