First produced in 2016, Seppelt One Mile Drive wines are a premium collection of classic Australian varietals. These wines are inspired by the many great drops that for many years matured in ‘The Drives’ underground cellars beneath Seppelt’s original Victorian home.
Sourced from the Adelaide Hills. The 2018 Chardonnay is a complex, elegant white wine displaying juicy stone fruit aromatics, layered notes of melon and peach complemented by hints of spicy French oak.

Abundant fleshy cherries, wild berries and cranberries jump out of the glass. There’s hints of earth, spice and bay leaf, but the lifted fruit is the main act.
A balanced, medium-bodied palate with juicy stone fruit flavours and a touch of subtle oak combined with a good acid backbone and a generous, well rounded and zesty finish.
The Adelaide Hills is one of Australia’s younger wine regions, but it’s as savvy as its famous Sauv Blanc. With a cool climate and high altitude, its dynamic winemakers are also responsible for top notch Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
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.
