Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre Barossa Valley South Australia
Para Grand is named after the Para River that flows through the centre of the Barossa Valley. Instantly recognisable in its unique bottle, Para was first released in 1953 and quickly became an Australian legend with a distinctive style, highlighting rich fruit flavours and great aged complexity. Great intensity and rich, ripe fruit flavours, exhibiting the capacity to show all of the aged characteristics associated with the now famous Para style. A classically Australian Tawny that's totally toothsome, offering hedonistic aged rancio complexity.
Para Grand Tawny is an assemblage of a number of exclusively Grenache, Shiraz (Syrah), Mourvedre (Mataro) wines from across many vintages, matured through the traditional Solera system. Component wines are aged individually in small oak casks to ensure only those components that had achieved the desired quality and style entered the final Cuvee. Through a careful selection and blending process at the Seppeltsfield wineworks, the resulting wine is treated to the Solera system for maturation. With ageing the wine has become complex, smooth and mellow. A pronounced rancio character is also evident, derived from the extended oak maturation. Alcohol 19.
Walnut brown colour. Deep mahogany in colour, with olive green tinges. A powerful bouquet displaying an excellent balance of rich fruit, nutty vanillin oak and a hint of chocolate. Further complexity is derived from the aged rancio character and fine brandy spirit, the epitome of the Para liqueur style. Full bodied, rich and luscious, with concentrated lingering flavours. Immensely satisfying, and flavourful, Parra can be served chilled, and is ideally suited to all good cheeses and dessert.
