2018 Seppeltsfield No. EC4 Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz Barossa Valley

From: $42.00

2018 Seppeltsfield No. EC4 Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz Barossa Valley – Red varietal blends carrying an ‘EC’ (East Cellar) number were first released by Seppeltsfield’s founding family in the 1960s, their compositions of region and variety varying on each release. The earliest of bottlings however regularly included Barossa Valley fruit as the major component, across traditional varietals such as Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Mataro.

The East Cellar code itself was a unique reference to where the wines were rested and matured in oak barrels prior to release.

Honouring these past bottlings, today Seppeltsfield’s ‘Bench Blend’ releases continue to encourage the winemaking art of assemblage (bench blending). Each year, the final bottlings are determined not only by the season, but also the very best combination of red varieties – borne through bench blending trials.

Final blend is Cabernet Sauvignon (53%) and Shiraz (47%). Seeing French oak hogsheads, (30% new, 70% seasoned).

Immediate Cabernet aromas; Cassis, dry herbs and bay leaves, hints of Shiraz dark. Rich, fleshy and full – bramble berry fruits fleshed out with generous dark fruited Shiraz. A youthful freshness, driven by very fine tannin and balanced acidity.

Enjoy now, or will mature well over 5-8 years.
