2001 Seppeltsfield Para 21 Year Old Tawny

South Australia

A rich and delicious Tawny Port from one of the Barossa's best fortified producers



Unctuous, with head-spinning complexity... with a seam of freshness that drives the flavours across the tongue and off into the distance.

About the Wine

The 2001 Seppeltsfield Para 21 Year Old Tawny is yet another indicator of why this winery is so highly regarded for its fortifieds.

For 21 years this wine sat in barrels, maturing and developing its rich aromas and flavours, and now we get to finally enjoy this beautiful wine. With rich almond, raisin, chocolate and prune characters, there is lots of sweetness on the palate yet as you savour the wine in the mouth the finish turns dry, thanks to the fine tannin structure.

As with any tawny-style wine, enjoy it with rich desserts or just sip on a cold evening in front on the fireplace/heater.

About Seppeltsfield

Seppeltsfield is a Barossa icon winery, famous for its unbroken line of hundred-year old tawny release, and also for its Canary Island date palms which line the avenues of its amazing cellar and winery.

First established by Joseph and Johanna Seppelt in 1850, it has been back in private hands since 2007 after a period of corporate ownership, owned by winemaker Warren Randall.

Their incredible heritage of fortified wines is now being supplemented by a renewed focus on outstanding still table wines. The future seems as bright as its past.

Additional Info

From the Producer

The Seppeltsfield 2001 Single Vintage Para Tawny is proudly a single vintage fortified wine, whereby parcels have been matured in old oak hogsheads for 21 years. Brandy spirit has been used as the fortification element, which along with extensive oxidative aging, gives rise to roasted nut, praline and butterscotch aromas and flavours. A fine example of single vintage Tawny from extended barrel maturation, lifted, fresh & elegant.

21 years old represents a coming of age, and our 2001 21 Year Old Para Tawny is the perfect way to celebrate it.

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"A single-vintage Para Tawny from the great estate of Seppeltsfield with 21 years under its belt. Medium tawny in the glass with amber flashes and notes of roasting nuts, candied citrus rinds, burnt toffee, butterscotch, brandy snaps, rancio and Christmas cake, with layers and layers of spice below. Unctuous, with head-spinning complexity and length of finish, with a seam of freshness that drives the flavours across the tongue and off into the distance." - Dave Brookes (Halliday Wine Companion)


"Pure caramel and toffee with a lovely depth and intensity. Dried oranges, too. It’s full-bodied and very sweet with a terrific depth and finish. Really long in the mouth. Brittle crackle. Drink now." -

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
