Bethany Old Quarry Barossa Valley Tawny
An Aussie 'Port' aged in old oak casks for an average of ten years
Made from the traditional Barossa tawny port varieties – Grenache and Shiraz and harvested late in the season to achieve maximum ripeness and complexity. After fortification with premium quality brandy spirit it is aged in old oak casks for an average of ten years. The bouquet displays intense raisin and nutty rancio characters which carry on to the mellow, dried fruit palate. The lingering finish is rich and full of flavour, with pleasant, well integrated tannins and brandy spirit.
The Schrapel family has been growing grapes in the Barossa Valley for 140 years, and has had the winery since 1981. In their winery nestled high on a hillside on the site of an old bluestone quarry, Geoff and Rob Schrapel produce a range of consistently well made and attractively packaged wines.
