    Style

    The Paramount DP898 Aged Flor Apera is crafted using the Palomino variety, renowned for its neutral flavour profile and suitability to dryer Apera (previously known in Australia as Sherry) styles. The DP898 gains its complexity through the influence of a layer of yeast (flor), as well through extended barrel maturation. This layer of flor however is later removed, prompting oxidative maturation and the development of subtle nutty and wood aged characters. This style would have traditionally been referred to in Australia as Amontillado Sherry.

    Winemaking

    The Seppeltsfield Paramount Collection is inspired by the traditional Spanish and Portuguese 'fractional blending' method of aging wines. This system delivers high quality and style consistency by blending younger wines into old. After utilising only the very first cut of free-run juice and fortification with a neutral spirit, the DP898 Aged Flor Apera is matured in our Solero nurseries to an approximate average of 48 years, featuring individual components of over half a century in age.
