Seppeltsfield Para 2001 "21" Year Single Vintage Grand Tawny Port4628
Colour: Medium tawny with amber hues.
AROMA: Almond and vanilla biscotti.
PALATE: The richness of toffee covered nuts and the creaminess of chocolate mousse.
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 stands alone as a single vintage wine, whereby the most select parcels of 2001 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. Parcels have matured in old oak hogsheads. Brandy spirit has been used as the fortification element, which along with extensive oxidative ageing, gives rise to roasted nut, praline and butterscotch aromas and flavours.Parcels have matured in old oak hogsheads.

WINEMAKER'S COMMENTS: A fine example of single vintage Tawny from extended barrel maturation, lifted, fresh & elegant.
