About the Wine
The Seppeltsfield Nero d'Avola is a fun wine but serious on flavour.
The first thing you notice is the deep purple colour, which is common for Nero d'Avola. It has a lively mix of black and red fruits on the nose, as well as a touch of spice that keeps things interesting. The palate presents black and red fruits again, but with some liquorice spice and velvety tannins. The acidity keeps everyting bright and cheery, making this an ideal wine for Friday nights on the couch with a pizza.
Drink now or keep it for a year or two for some added complexity.
Seppeltsfield is a Barossa icon winery, famous for its unbroken line of hundred-year old tawny release, and also for its Canary Island date palms which line the avenues of its amazing cellar and winery.
First established by Joseph and Johanna Seppelt in 1850, it has been back in private hands since 2007 after a period of corporate ownership, owned by winemaker Warren Randall.
Their incredible heritage of fortified wines is now being supplemented by a renewed focus on outstanding still table wines. The future seems as bright as its past.
