Seppeltsfield draw inspiration from the traditional Spanish and Portuguese Solero method of aging wines, an ancient system which delivers high quality and style consistency by blending younger barrels into old. After utilising only the very first cut of free run juice and fortification with a neutral spirit, DP116 Aged Flor is matured for an average age of sixteen years. The evolving layers of yeast or Flor are eventually removed from the ageing DP116, prompting oxidative maturation and the development of subtle nutty flavours. Seppeltsfield’s historic Solero nurseries are made picturesque by the carefully stacked barrels in which stocks of precious fortified wines gracefully age.
Deep golden colour with a light, olive green hue. Mixed fruit peel, aged flor nose, delicate honey and cherry/almond notes. Exquisite balance on the palate between freshness and aged oak characters, resolving on a dry finish of extraordinary length. The classic expression of a Solero style, retaining the vitality and freshness of dry Flor with added rancio complexity.
