SEPPELTSFIELD TWIN GIFT BOXES (THE EASTING & THE WESTING)

Both 2018 Barossa ‘The Easting’ & ‘The Westing’ was vinified 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.

'The Easting' Shiraz was fermented in open fermenters, between 18 and 28 degrees and monitored daily over two by twelve-hour intervals.

'The Easting' & 'The Westing' were then matured for 14 months in new and seasoned French oak hogsheads. Bottled 28th November 2019. 

TASTING NOTES (The Easting)
Medium-weighted, the 2018 Barossa ‘The Easting’ displays typical Eden Valley Shiraz character of aromatic red Cherry and Blueberry fruits with defining acidity and supple tannins.

Colour: Youthful and bright reds, with crimson hues.
Aroma: Fragrant fresh Blueberries and Cherries, with Anise and Sage complexity.
Palate: Poised on the edge of medium-bodied, the tannin profile is fine-grained with a graceful palate of primary fruits.
Drink: Now or with cellaring potential through to 2030.

TASTING NOTES (The Westing)
A broad-shouldered Shiraz from the Barossa's West, the wine displays plump, ripe and dark fruits, framed by robust tannins and balanced acidity.
Colour: Deep red, crimson hue.
Aroma: Black fruits, tar and baking spices.
Palate: Deep core of concentrated fruit overlaid with robust, dark cocoa-like tannins.
Drink: Now or with cellaring potential through to 2030.
