SEPPELTSFIELD PARA 1998 21 YEARS OLD TAWNY - Straits Wine
 

SEPPELTSFIELD PARA 1998 21 YEARS OLD TAWNY

Wine Region: Barossa Valley, South Australia 

Grape: Grenache, Shiraz, Mourvedre

Tasting Notes

Colour: Medium amber with golden and red hues.

Aroma: Lifted blend of freshly baked almond and biscotti with a hint of hazelnut liqueur.

Palate: A medium weighted elegant wine with stylish brandy spirit and the creaminess of creme brulee, coupled with lightly toasted almonds.

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 however stands alone as a single vintage wine, whereby the most select parcels of 1999 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.
