100 Points - Ralph Kyte-Powell, The Age Aromas of espresso, vino cotto, panforte, old furniture. The rich palate expresses date and prune reduction, dark chocolate, coffee roast. The Paramount DP64 Tokay is crafted using the Muscadelle variety For nearly 140 years, the Rutherglen region of North-Eastern Victoria has been producing this fortified treasure. With extended ripening on the vine, the resultant fruit is high in natural sugar which is then briefly fermented and fortified with a neutral spirit, to produce an indulgent and seamless wine. The Paramount DP64 Tokay is a blend of many vintage years, however maintains an average age of 32 years. Remarkably, the Paramount DP64 blend features a small parcel of vintage-dated Tokay from the 1922 vintage.

The Wine Advocate

This nose runs the spectrum of baking spices and fruitcake aromas with some toasted almonds and hazelnuts. After a few minutes in the glass a complex undercurrent of new aromas develop - meaty, earthy, leathery. On the palate this is a very elegant wine with less sweetness and heat here than with the other Seppeltsfield fortifieds, though still a rich, full bodied style. Medium to high acidity with a long, complex finish.

James Halliday

Dark umber-brown grading to dark olive-green on the rim; pours as thickly as any rare North East Victoria fortified, and similarly stains the glass; burnt toffee, celestial wild honey, Christmas cake, way beyond tea leaf/cold tea; explodes in the mouth, the tsunami of flavours almost painful, but constantly changing, a vinous equivalent of computer laser-colouring of buildings.

Woah! The colour of an eagle's eye and it clings to the side of the glass like a five year old to its mum's leg on the first day of school. Kopiko lollies, polished wood, chocolate, dark plum pudding, walnuts etc. etc. Palate saturating, viscous and round, all coffee and fig and dates - so much flavour with just the right amount of acidity to keep it in check - and a rolling finish drenched in sweet coffee with an impossible level of sustain. To paraphrase one of the greats - Nigel Tufnel: The sustain, listen to it. Marty DiBergi: I don't hear anything. Nigel Tufnel: Well you would though, if you were drinking this. Awesome.
