One of the prime production areas for port is now Australia, especially the Barossa Valley in southern Australia. Here, Seppeltsfield produces some of the finest ports in the world, and one of its premier ports right now is the 1910 100-Year-Old Tawny. It is, according to Seppeltsfield, a “full-bodied tawny style, awesome in its power and concentration,” and “every drop holds the promise of an exquisite life-enriching experience.” And this may just be more than mere hyperbole.

This tawny port produced by Seppeltsfield, having been aged in wooden barrels under a specific roof structure for 100 years, is an intense and viscous port. It is concentrated, owing to evaporation over those 100 years, and has a burnt-toffee, caramel, nutty character. This is a port that, while appropriate wine and food pairings can no doubt be found for it, is probably best experienced on its own.
