Mahogony with rich amber hues.

A lifted and stylish bouquet displaying lightly toasted almonds, praline and vanilla nougat.

Palate

Medium bodied but rich' lingering flavours of toasted nuts, age complexity plus fine brandy spirit complete the Para Grand Tawny palate.

Style

Para Grand is named after the Para River that flows through the centre of the Barossa Valley and instantly recognisable in its unique bottle. Para quickly became an Australian legend with a distinctive style, highlighting rich fruit flavours and great aged complexity.

Winemaker's Comments

Full bodied, rich and luscious, with concentrated lingering flavours. With aging the wine has become complex, smooth and mellow. A pronounced rancio character is also evident, derived from extended oak maturation.

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.
