Seppeltsfield is a showpiece of the Barossa Valley, a magnificent complex of 19th century winery buildings surrounded by almost 100 hectares of vineyards. Seppeltsfield was a focal point of the fledgling Barossa wine industry from the 1850s and now boasts the world’s longest unbroken chain of vintage wines, going back to 1878, enabling the release of a genuine 100-year-old fortified wine each year since 1978. These guys are older and have more vintages of vintage Port-style wines that most (if not all of) the Portuguese Port houses!
The Para Rare Tawny draws upon a selection of Seppeltsfield’s finest aged Tawny components to achieve a blend of depth and finesse that is a minimum of 18 years average age. Onion brown color with an olive green hue. Intense aromas of honeyed walnut, raisins and marzipan meld into some brandied fruit cake, hazelnut and spice notes. Exceptionally rich and concentrated, luscious raisin, honey and marmalade flavors lead into a long marzipan, brandy spirit, rancio, dried nut and spice finish. Viscous mouthfeel with a long nutty rancio, honey, marmalade, raisin, marzipan and spice aftertaste.
