Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep amber-brown

Aroma

Marmalade, dried peel and worked leather

Palate

Rich and profound, with initial honeyed sweetness complemented with wood aged characters

Style

Seppeltsfield's DP38 is crafted of a complex array of varietals including Palomino and Grenache, all of which are initially matured separately. The DP38 is a result of a judicious process of balancing sweeter fruit parcels with savoury, before being introduced into the Solero nurseries. Unlike the DP117 and DP116 Flor styles, the DP38 Rich Rare Apera is fortified to a level that does not permit the growth of flor yeast. The DP38 is the richest and sweetest of the Seppeltsfield Solero aperitif styles.

Winemaker's Comments

A classic expression of the style, with a richness and front palate sweetness well balanced by a dry finish.

Technical Information

History

With a proud and priceless legacy dating back to 1851, Seppeltsfield is Australia's most iconic wine estate. Seppeltsfield was established in the Barossa Valley 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 1900's. 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 Seppeltsfield Solero 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 DP38 material is matured in our Solero nurseries to an average age of 18 years. Seppeltsfield's historic Solero nurseries are identifiable by the carefully stacked barrels in which they gracefully mature.
