Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep amber with golden and red hues.

Aroma

Aromatic blend of almond nougat and vanilla wafer biscuits.

Palate

An elegant style that treads lightly on the palate, crema catalana and almond biscotti with stylish balanced brandy spirit.

Style

Tawny styles refer to fortified wines that have been blended using red grape varietals, which in the Barossa, typically include Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre. Often, Tawny styles are carefully blended from a range of vintage years to achieve a consistent style and minimum age. The 21 year old Para Tawny however stands alone as a single vintage wine, whereby the most select parcels of 1998 vintage wine are drawn from barrel and bottled as a special celebratory release. Its style therefore has the added complexity of being a reflection of the growing conditions during a singular season.

Winemaker's Comments

Lifted, elegant, rich in flavour - another fine example of single vintage Tawny from extended barrel maturation.

Technical Information

History

With a proud and priceless legacy dating back to 1851, Seppeltsfield is Australia's iconic wine estate. Seppeltsfield was established by Joseph and Johanna Seppelt just 15 years after the European settlement of South Australia. One of the largest and most modern wineries in the world of its time, Seppeltsfield went on to thrive as an artisan community throughout the early 1900s. Steeped in rich Barossan heritage, the estate is considered a true national treasure which helped shape the history of the Australian wine industry. As a new dawn rises over Seppeltsfield, our passion is to return the estate to its artisan roots and continue the enduring legacy of the Seppelt family.

Winemaking

The 21 year old Para Tawny is proudly a single vintage fortified wine, whereby parcels have been matured in old oak hogsheads. Brandy spirit has been used as the fortification element, which along with extensive oxidative aging, gives rise to roasted nut, praline and butterscotch aromas and flavours.
