2016 Saep Eddy Shiraz

Adelaide Hills, SA

Silky smooth, preservative free Shiraz put together by the formidable combination of viticulturist Dave Gartlemann and winemaker Abel Gibson.


For me, the interesting thing is the vineyard, and these wines are snapshots of individual vineyards I farm.

About The Wine

The Sǣp wines are a collaboration between expert viticulturalist Dave Gartlemann, and enigmatic winemaking master, Abel Gibson. The combination of the talents of these two gentlemen is potent.

The wines come from special sites that Dave tends from across South Australia. As a grape-growing gun for hire, Gartlemann works with some very good vineyards. When a parcel of fruit catches his eye, he grabs it. Dave makes the wines with a natural philosophy under Abel's carful guidance. 

This is a small batch of spicy, slippery Adelaide Hills Shiraz with a few bunches of Semillon in the mix for a little extra zip through the mouth. It was made with no preservatives and it's brilliant value for money.

The wines come and go quickly, but Sǣp is an 'under the radar' wine label that you should get to know.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Elegant, and super fine, pretty as a picture. Blue and red fruit, lovely lift in the nose filled with flowers and spices dappled with white pepper. Lovely fine tannin. Soft and sumptuous. Very fresh and very vibrant. What a little cracker. - Different Drop Wine Team

Additional Info

From The Producer

He’s a crunchy, drink now drop. Fresh acid, driven, low alcohol – nothing here but the grape juice. The only illicit thing hiding in Eddy might be a few bunches of Semillon. Hand picked, wholeberry ferment, less time on skins – early press to tank preserving aromatics.

Closure : Screw cap

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.
