Wine of the Month in the Cottages
Published on 11 Dec 2018
Our complimentary wine for guests this month is the Seppeltsfield Grenache. The wine was made in the ‘joven’ style, meaning it is to be enjoyed now and has no oak maturation. The grapes are harvested from a contoured row, bush-vine block. This means all the grapes have to be hand picked and hand pruned. The Grenache was crafted through the historic 1888 Gravity Cellar. Built into the hillside on a series of terraces, gravity guides the flow of fruit down through the winery to deliver gentle extraction of colour, flavour and tannin.
Enjoy the wine, then a ‘must do’, is visit Seppeltsfield. Drive along the iconic date palm lined roads, enjoy the beautiful gardens, have a picnic from Benno’s kiosk, or choose to dine at Fino, visit Vasse Virgin, the JamFactory and all the other artisan makers. It is a fabulous day out!!
