Seppeltsfield 100 Year Old Para Tasting

Keeping on the subject of wine tastings, The Wine Emporium is running a tasting this week featuring one of Australia's truly unique wines - the Seppeltsfield 100 Year Old Para Vintage Tawny.

I've never been lucky enough to taste it, but as you've probably guessed from the name, every vintage is 100 years old. Sure it's expensive (about $1,000 a bottle), but there aren't too many wines in the world that can compare with this. James Halliday is clearly a fan, declaring in his 2009 Australian Wine Companion:

"In prior years I have given the wine 98 points, which is clearly wrong. This is the one and only 100-point wine made in Australia."

The tasting will also include 3 muscats, 3 tokays and four tawnys, but I imagine most people will be there to try the 100 year old Para.

Tickets are $50, and bookings are essential.
