Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep Tawny with vibrant amber brown hues and an olive tinge.

Aroma

Complex and evolves in the glass. Rich and aged characters of spicy dark fruit cake, roasted Brazil nuts with lifted, dried citrus notes.

Palate

Long, brooding - great flavour depth with bright acidity.

Style

Para Rare Tawny is the result of careful blending of individual vintage parcels to achieve an average age of 18 years. Patiently matured in oak barrels within the historic cellars of Seppeltsfield, Para Rare Tawny displays complex aromatic spices and remarkable palate length. Para is an indigenous Australian reference to 'river', and the name of the local regions major watercourse.

Winemaker's Comments

The Para Rare Tawny style is characterised by two main elements - selected aged material identified for its increased richness and complexity, which is then balanced by the careful blending addition of Rich Rare Apera (Oloroso Sherry). The result is a sophisticated, alluring Tawny with a hallmark length of palate.
