In Langtons Outstanding category. Seppeltsfield has probably the greatest stocks and heritage of Ports in Australia. No visit to the Barossa is complete without a visit to them. What other winery in the world releases a wine which is 100 years old every year (that port is in the Exceptional Category). This wine luscious, viscous and raisiny with great density. — 4 months ago
My parents went to 🇵🇹 and all I got was a decent port. (And sardine paté actually).
Ruby red 👁️ (duh)
Petrol (alcohol?) Then dried fruits followed by hints of spices (pepper, cinnamon and cloves) 👃
Ripe cherry and dry red and black fruits with some nuttiness and spicy hints. background tartness all along the way.
Light and pleasently dry 🎯
Paired well with dark chocolate with added lemon and black pepper. It made the wine richer and much more 🍋lemony.
Nothing extra exciting, but does what it says on the tin.
Using this port instead of rosso vermouth in a negroni 🍸 worked very nicely. — 5 days ago
Almost pitch black in colour which is surprising considering this Port is 62 years old and the oldest Australian wine I had in my cellar. Back when Australia had the imperial system this is 1 pint and 6 fluid ounces. This is rancio sweet with Fruit Cake/Plum Pudding and notes of Liquorice and old leather and Tar. Medium to full bodied, complex, supple and loooong! Absolutely amazing as one might expect from an iconic Australian Port. Thanks to wife Barbie for letting me drink her Christmas Present with the family. — 11 days ago
In the Langtons Excellent category. A Shiraz blend from the Yarra Valley created originally by the enigmatic Dr Bailey Carrodus who has passed. Probably the first person in Australia to co-ferment Shiraz and Viognier. Always a delicious long living wine. — 4 months ago
Deep tawny brown and semi-clear. Rich nose with layers of toffee, almond paste, woody and stewed plums. Solid acidity cutting through the sweetness. Layered flavors on the palate of tropical fruits, cedar, cherries, spices and nutty. Acidity hits through at the backend of the palate and has some nice depth. Long finish. Drinking will right now. — 16 days ago
