97 Points & Top 100 Wines of 2018 James Halliday
Winery of the Year – 2018 Halliday Wine Companion Awards
Since the first vintage in 1976, Seville Estate has cemented its position as one of Australia’s premium wineries, consistently receiving widespread acclaim and many prestigious awards, both in Australia and internationally.
2017 was a mild year with a late summer producing outstanding wines.
“Vines planted ’72, hand-picked and sorted in the vineyard, 70% whole berry/30% whole bunches, wild yeast open ferment, 23 days on skins, matured in French oak (30% new) for 10 months. A meltingly beautiful pinot reflecting the vintage and vineyard inputs. Right from the outset, it offers a spray of red flowers and spices (bouquet), and red fruits plus spices and a spider web of ultra-fine tannins (palate). This is an exercise in the purity of pinot noir at a high level, perfect to drink tonight or in a decade hence.” – 97 Points & Top 100 Wines of 2018 James Halliday
