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."
