Seppeltsfield today unveiled one of Australia’s most significant wines – the 1923 100 Year Old Para Vintage Tawny.
The wine – $1,650 a bottle (100ml) which includes a gift box – is the first to feature a new look.
The release coincides with the day the Seppelt family moved into the homestead.
“As custodians of the Seppeltsfield Centennial Collection, we are proud of the amazing legacy and vision of Benno Oscar Seppelt, son of our founders Joseph and Johanna Seppelt, dating back to 1878,” chief winemaker Fiona Donald says.
“Today we celebrate the start of an exciting new chapter for the jewel in the crown, the Seppeltsfield 100 Year Old Para Vintage Tawny, with the branding evolving into a more contemporary and luxurious style to align with our still wine collection.
This is the 46th consecutive 100 Year Old Para Vintage Tawny to be released from the historic 1878 Centennial Cellar and is rated as ‘Exceptional’ in the Langton’s Classification of Australian Wine.
The release will be celebrated by the Barossa region in a special presentation at the 2023 Declaration of Vintage Celebrations on Sunday.
Each bottle is hand filled to order, individually numbered and authenticated for collection purpose, with signatures from both the Seppeltsfield executive chairman and proprietor Warren Randall, and Bill Seppelt, the great, great grandson of Joseph and Johanna Seppelt.
The wine is presented in a black wooden gift box along with a certificate that can be personalised with your message accordingly.
There is also a QR code to link you directly to the tasting note.
Seppeltsfield, established in 1851, has long been internationally renowned for its treasure trove of fortifieds highlighted by the Centennial Collection – the world’s only unbroken lineage of single vintage Tawny dating back to 1878.
