Notes sourced from the producer.

Combining the classic Champagne grape varieties of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, Seppelt winemakers craft an elegant and refined sparkling wine that also includes up to five per cent of aged reserve wines for added complexity.

The importance of assemblage, the blending of base wines from different regions and grape varieties, with each component wine contributing to the finished blend is the emphasis. In the manner of Champagne, no one fruit or other character is dominant on either bouquet or palate, the latter fine and elegant, but progressively building its impact through to the long finish. Seppelt Salinger is then left to rest and develop in the famous underground cellars at Seppelt Great Western for a minimum of three years before release. 13% Alc./Vol.
