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 Victoria’s Heathcote region, this wine displays the classic regional characters of bright raspberry fruit, dark chocolate and fine earthy tannins to produce an approachable yet concentrated Seppelt Shiraz.

Aromas of red, dark and blue fruits with perfumed rose petals, sweet spice and earthy notes.
Concentrated raspberry fruit, spice and dark chocolate characters combined with fine, velvety tannins, fleshy texture and well integrated cedary oak.
Rocketing to fame for Shiraz borne from its long band of red volcanic soil winding up to Mount Camel, Heathcote’s naturally fertile, rust coloured Cambrian earth is over 100 million years old. The result is deeply coloured, seductive wines.
A wet winter with above average rainfall was followed by cool, dry spring conditions, resulting in good fruit set and lower than average yields. Summer temperatures were cool with little rain, resulting in a long growing season and exceptional quality.
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.
