Solero DP116 Aged Flor Apera

The Seppeltsfield Solero Collection is inspired by the traditonal Spanish and Portuguese 'fractional blending' method of aging wines. This system delivers high quality and style consistency by blending younger wines into old. After
utilising only the very first cut of free-run juice and fortification with a neutral spirit, the DP116 Aged Flor Apera is matured in our Solero nurseries to an average age of 16 years. Seppeltsfield's historic Solero nurseries are identifiable by the carefully stacked barrels in which they gracefully mature.

On line review

Seppeltsfield's DP116 is crafted using the Palomino variety, renown for its neutral flavour profile and suitability to dry Apera styles.
The DP116 is similar to the DP117 Dry Flor Apera, where a layer of yeast (flor) adds palate complexity in the form of aldehydic characters. This layer of flor however is later removed with the DP116, prompting oxidative maturation and the development of subtle nutty flavours.
