Seppeltsfield has published a series of podcasts to highlight its 168-year-old history.
The podcasts, which explore Seppeltsfield’s heritage and the 1919 100 Year-Old Vintage Para Tawny, are written and narrated by Master of Wine Andrew Caillard and produced by Christophe Priddle of The Grape Underground.
The podcasts also reveal what it’s like to taste a 100-year-old wine – an experience that Seppeltsfield offers to guests for $150 as part of a private tour through the Centennial Cellar.
Seppeltsfield intends to publish a tasting note podcast of the 100 Year-Old Para Vintage Tawny every year as a new means of preserving the historical context of each vintage release.
“Seppeltsfield 100 Year Old Para Vintage Tawny is rated as ‘Exceptional’ in Langton’s Classification of Australian Wine, reflecting its First Growth status and historic narrative,” Mr Caillard says.
“It belongs to a contiguous collection of vintages that goes back to 1878 and is one of the most important fragments of Australia’s 19th century colonial history.
“Seppeltsfield, in many respects, defines the story of the Barossa Valley and its ambitions for the future.
“By bringing this evocative narrative to the ears of the world, through audio streaming, it is hoped that more people will be captivated by the rich fabric of Seppeltsfield and its place in the extraordinary history of South Australian wine.”
