Seppeltsfield's DP117 is crafted using the Palomino variety, renown for its neutral flavour profile and suitability to dry Apera styles. Seppeltsfield produces small parcels of DP117 each year, to then be added to our Solero nurseries for aging and blending. With the influence of Flor yeast formation, DP117 is characterised by its bone-dry palate and distinctive aldehyde notes.
Seppeltsfield was established in the Barossa Valley by Joseph and Johanna Seppelt just 15 years after the European settlement of South Australia. Steeped in rich Barossan heritage, the estate is considered a true national treasure which helped shape the history of the Australian wine industry.
Seppeltsfield is most famed for the Centennial Collection - an irreplaceable and unbroken lineage of Tawny, every vintage from 1878 to current year. The estate remains the only winery in the world to release a 100 year old, single vintage wine each year. The estate also boasts a remarkable collection of Apera (Australian Sherry), crossing Fino to Oloroso styles, Tokay and Muscat, all held in vast Solero nursery cellars.
