New sparkling range pays tribute to wine industry pioneer

Seppelt, whose Salinger is one of Australia's finest sparkling wines, has just released a new range of bubbles: Pierlot by Seppelt, which pays tribute to the brand's winemaking heritage. 

The new releases honour the legacy of Charles Pierlot, a Champenoise winemaker who pioneered Australian méthode traditionnelle sparkling wine production at Seppelt’s Great Western winery in 1890. 

The range features a Brut Cuvée and a Brut Rosé crafted by the Seppelt winemaking team, which is now led by Clare Dry (below). 

“We’re proud to release Pierlot by Seppelt, a series of wines which honour our past and help celebrate the future,” says Dry. 

“These wines are an elegant tribute to our sparkling roots and pair perfectly with food, friends and celebration.”

The wines are made using the three classic sparkling varietals; pinot noir, chardonnay and pinot meunier sourced from Victoria’s cool-climate Henty region.

“The majority of grapes for this range are sourced from our Drumborg Vineyard – a special site first planted in 1964, with the primary aim to produce world-class sparkling wines,” says Dry. 

“It’s pleasing to craft two leading wine styles emblazoned with Charles Pierlot’s name - a gentleman who was instrumental in establishing Seppelt’s reputation for crafting quality méthode traditionnelle wines.”

Racegoers at this year’s Melbourne Cup Carnival (yuck!) will be among the first to enjoy the wines, with Pierlot by Seppelt available at all Victoria Racing Club bars and restaurants.

The Pierlot by Seppelt wines (RRP $30), are now available from Dan Murphy’s and at select BWS stores nationwide. 

# Founded in 1851, Seppelt is one of Australia’s most historic wine producers. See
