Now with seven years of careful rest in our cellars, we are tremendously pleased to be able to re-release the unique and highly sought-after 2012 Drumborg Vineyard Riesling.
Seppelt Winemaker, Adam Carnaby, says the 2012 Museum Release Drumborg Vineyard Riesling is showing “…only some hints of age on the nose with aromas of roasted nuts and French toast, however the palate is pristine... Built to last, this wine should age gracefully for a further 20 years or more!”.
Whether you choose to enjoy today, or cellar further, we advise acting promptly to secure your parcel of this limited museum release.

A little rustic, with savoury spices, red berries, bright cherry and potpourri aromatics.
Minerally, fine line with gravel chalkiness, delicate structure persists braced by perfectly integrated acidity. Intense lemon and lime, light dried grasses and savoury nuances balanced by lovely texture and weight on the palate. A wine of balance, delicacy and intensity.
Henty is one of the coolest wine regions of Australia but is protected by a maritime influence. Famed for being the home of cool climate viticulture and the iconic Drumborg vineyard, Henty is renowned for its Rieslings, Chardonnays and Sparklings.
The 2012 vintage in Drumborg was one of the great seasons for table wine in recent times. Low yields, slightly drier and warmer than average conditions produced stunning results. Riesling from Drumborg produced great purity and varietal character, all knitted together by its trademark structure.
As a Hospitality Manager at Melbourne’s Hilton Hotel, Adam’s affinity for the wine industry became so apparent that he enrolled in a Bachelor of Wine Science degree at Charles Sturt University, graduating in 2003. In 2001 he was appointed Assistant Winemaker at Yering Station in the Yarra Valley where he remained for five years, gaining vintage experience in Burgundy in-between. Then in 2007 he moved to Margaret River to be a Winemaker at Xanadu Wines for a further five years. These days Adam proudly dons two winemaking hats, creating outstanding cool climate wines from across Victoria: in 2011 he commenced as Seppelt Winemaker and in 2016 added the responsibilities of being Winemaker for T’Gallant. He relishes the challenge of being in charge of two great Australian wine producers – Seppelt with its 165 year history and focus on cool climate sparkling, Shiraz, Chardonnay and Riesling from the Grampians, Heathcote and Henty regions; and the more eccentric T’Gallant, pioneers of Pinot Grigio and Gris in Australia based in the Mornington Peninsula.
