Seppeltsfield DP90 Rare Tawny has reigned supreme on the Australian wine show circuit for over 30 years and as the most awarded wine of any style is rightfully regarded as the benchmark Australian Tawny. Fruit from extremely low yielding Barossa Valley vines is given extended maturation in small oak casks at Seppeltsfield in the Barossa Valley before careful blending to create a wine with incomparable levels of finesse, complexity and length.

Full-on tawny colour; the bouquet immediately proclaims the age and the class of the wine; the palate is electric in its intensity and vibrancy, the rancio penetrating and lingering; the aftertaste goes on and on, and it is here that the glorious breed and quality of the wine is most apparent.96 Points - James Halliday 2012 Wine Companion
Winery Tasting Notes
Medium Tawny with aged olive-green hues.
The nose is fragrant and penetrating with a complex array of spice, walnuts, toffee, old leather and aged rancio framed by fine oak characters.
The palate is built around finesse and complexity combined with great concentration of flavour. Initial flavours of raisin fruit and butterscotch build and evolve, offering hints of spice, walnuts and toffee on an incredibly long, dry finish.
Ideally suited to Cheese, Dessert
