Seppeltsfield will release one of Australia’s most historically significant wines on Friday 20th February, with the 1915 Para 100 Year Old Vintage Tawny being officially unveiled.
The 1915 vintage and 37th release of the Tawny (previously known as Australian Port), will mark the centenary observance of ANZAC - a wine remarkably crafted in the year Australian and New Zealand forces first landed at Gallipoli.
Less than 550 (375ml size) bottles will be released globally.
Seppeltsfield remains the only winery in the world to release a 100 year old wine every year - each vintage released having spent a century maturing in oak barrels in the Barossa Valley cellars.
