Seppeltsfield NV Para Grand Tawny Red (Australia)

Editors' Choice

The Para Grand Tawny is an excellent example of this style as well as an affordable opportunity to try a fortified from this renowned historic estate. Aged an average of 10 years, it's a burnt sugar color, with the beginnings of a green rim, but still looking vibrant. The nose is less nutty and oxidative and more evocative of dusty library books, leather armchairs, baked raisins, molasses, coffee beans and warm spice. In the mouth a lovely acidity cuts through the sweetness. There's burn to the alcohol but stays balanced, the flavors flowing to a long finish. Sip slightly chilled with creme brûlée or tiramisu.
