    Winemaking

    Para Liqueur is proudly a single vintage fortified wine, matured in small oak barrels of which are subjected to warm cellaring conditions. This storage plays an important role in the style development of the wine, as the warm environment exacerbates evaporation. An estimated 3% is lost each year to the 'angels share', with the wine continually concentrating in flavour, aroma and viscosity during its maturation in barrel.

    Maturation

    The supreme concentration and complexity of the Liqueur is a result of extended wood aging, giving rise to a silky texture and a delicate balance of sweetness and savoury freshness.
