Seppeltsfield Para Tawny 1988

An icon of the wine world and perfect for a slightly cool Hobart Christmas day evening around the fire with friends and family. Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre the usual suspects here.

Seppeltsfield, Para, Tawny, Barossa Valley, 1988

An enticing caramel colour in the glass: heady aromas of buttery rancio, toffee sauce, cinnamon and walnut. Elegant, balanced and retains a natural spice this is luscious with burnt butter, rancio, preserved lemon and toffee leading to a buzzing, tight finish. Iconic and destined for many more years ahead.
