Deep mahogany in colour with olive green tinges. A powerful bouquet displaying rich fruit, nutty vanillin oak and a hint of chocolate. Further complexity is derived from the aged rancio character and fine brandy spirit. Full bodied, right and luscious, with concentrated lingering flavours. With ageing, the wine has become complex, smooth and mellow.
Named after the river that flows through the centre of the Barossa Valley, the Para Tawny was first released in 1953 and quickly became an Australian legend. Component wines are aged individually in small oak casks before a careful selection and blending process. It is then placed in a Solera system before release.
Over its 167-year history Seppeltsfield has built its reputation on the production of exceptional fortified wines and remains the only winery in the world to release a 100-year-old, single vintage wine each year.
Established in 1851 by Joseph Seppelt, the winery flourished in the 20th century as part of the Seppelt family's expanding interests in the liquor industry, which grew to include vineyards and wineries across various Australian regions. The Seppelts maintained ownership until 1985, when the winery entered a period of corporate ownership which lasted until 2007. Seppeltsfield is now owned by Warren Randall - a qualified viticulturist and winemaker who worked for the Seppelt family during the 1980s. Randall has led a Seppeltsfield renaissance by developing its vineyard holdings on the 'Western Ridge' of the Barossa Valley and restoring the winery's heritage listed buildings, including the prized 1888 Gravity Cellar.
