Winemaker "The grapes are fermented in large, shallow open masonry fermenters, pumped over, chilled and pressed through a basket press. It is then racked into barrels to undergo natural MLF, keeping the free run and pressings separate to be blended back together prior to bottling. The wine is pumped into seasoned American hogsheads with a small percentage going into new oak barrels. It is then left to mature for approximately 27 months, and is usually not filtered or fined prior to bottling. This rich, dark red wine has complex aromas of spice and fruit, plums, berries and a splash of dark chocolate with a lingering velvety finish."

95 Points - James Halliday
Intense and elegant, with silky mouthfeel and great length; plum, spice, blackberry and even blackcurrant; seamless oak and tannins.
96 Points - Joe Czerwinski (robertparker.com) "While the 2019 Holy Grail Seppeltsfield Road Seppeltsfield Shiraz lacks the compelling richness of the previous vintage or the intoxicating complexity of the Coach House Block, it's still a fabulous wine. Slightly caramelized red raspberries lead the way, joined by blueberries and lent a savory touch through hints of black olives and licorice. It's medium to full-bodied, ripe and generous, with a lush, velvety feel and a lingering, harmonious and even elegant finish that never seems heavy or overdone, sip after sip."
Mike Bennie (Wine Front) "Seppeltsfield vineyard, the newest estate vineyard in the Two Hands folio of vines. “The pinnacle of our wine production” touts the marketing materials.
It’s potent red wine, no doubt, powerful, concentrated, energetic. It smells ripe fruited, dense, with blackberries, boot polish, liquorice, brined black olives and mint in the mix. Breathy and warm to taste with deep flavour profile, red and black berry fruit characters, very ripe, breathy sweet spice, lifted, citrusy acidity doing fresh things but poking out the finish too. It feels like a wine that needs time, with character-filled fruit on hand."
The first Six Origins project release from the extraordinarily strong 2018 vintage focuses on the Barossa’s hero – Shiraz. Six winemakers have each been charged with producing a wine that presents as a distinctive expression of Barossa Shiraz determined primarily by its origin. True to the spirit of Artisans of Barossa, decisions around vineyard selection, picking date and winemaking practices remained the privilege of the winemaker, but each wine was most definitely crafted to ensure the final result is a pronounced reflection of its vineyard origin.
92 Points - James Suckling
Ripe fruit with chocolate, spice and hints of raisins. Full body, round and juicy tannins and a flavorful finish. Really delicious. Drink now.
Winemaker’s notes: “Herbaceous characters of mint, capsicum, tomato leaf combine with rhubarb, plum and Campari like bitter orange to create a nose that is both varietal and vibrant. The palate begins with grippy tannins that lead to a mid-palate filled with sweet fruit and rosemary. On the back black cherry and choc-mint intermingle with grippy tannins providing a long finish. Freshness and vibrancy the key to this style.”

95 Points - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front) "Dried roses, ripe raspberry, something like black jelly beans, some sweet spices. Medium to full-bodied, plush and mouth-filling, but gentle too, with insistent silky tannin nudging it along, soft acidity, a savoury cast to a long finish with a cushion of royal purple velour tannin easing it out. Delightful. Texture is a highlight here."
93-95 Points - Joe Czerwinski (RobertParker.com) "The full-bodied 2017 Griffon's Key Grenache (tasted out of 500-liter puncheon) boasts knockout aromatics of roses and black cherries. Sweetly ripe fruit, silky tannins and a long, zesty finish suggest this will be great shortly after release yet have the potential of aging for up to a decade."
