The "Backbone" of Blackwell Shiraz

Situated in the western part of the Barossa Valley. The Seppeltsfield area is easily recognised by the canary date palms that line Seppeltsfield Road and picturesque rolling hills.

Well known as the site of the historic Seppelts winery.

Due to the undulating, western ridges and limey soils, the wines from Seppeltsfield are inky black coloured with concentrated dark fruit showcasing muscular tannin structures.
