This timeless Dry Apera is derived from Seppeltsfield's rich collection of fortified wines, offering a blend of DP116 (Aged Flor Apera) and DP117 (Dry Flor Apera), both now discontinued, to craft this new offering. Founded in 1851 by Joseph and Johanna Seppelt, Seppeltsfield in the Barossa Valley boasts a heritage steeped in pride and value, emerging just 15 years after South Australia's European settlement.

This shows notes of hazelnuts and almonds with dried fruit, spices and toffee caramel on offer. Dry, with a nutty sherry-like character, polished texture and same saline notes to it. Lengthy and characterful. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

The NV DP233 Dry Apera leads with an attractive nose of quince, orange peel, white pepper, sultana, fig and lashings of aniseed and smoked almonds. The wine is dry but luscious, with an oily mouthfeel and layers of savory spice. It's really good. It makes me want some sardines on toast with fancy salted butter. 20% alcohol, sealed under screw cap.
