Mr. Pickwick's Tawny is widely regarded as Australia's definitive tawny. Its average age of over 21 years makes it unique amongst fortified wines consistently available on a commercial basis.
Mr. Pickwick's is a distinguished wine, rounded and mellowed that can only come from great age and a long period of maturation in small oak casks. It is this which enhances the bouquet, develops the rich tawny colour and deepens the palate. Intense, concentrated and luscious, with a great richness, texture and mouthfilling flavour.

“Pale-mid-amber hue with a glint of rouge; raisins dipped in brandy, baking spices with toffee caramel all meeting up with complex barrel aged flavours, clean spirit almost a little brandy-esque and warming. Lemony freshness and acidity on the palate cutting through the sweetness.”
Ned Goodwin, Halliday Wine Companion
The old gear sitting around this part of the world is fertile grounds for fine fortified expressions. This is among them. Molasses, orange blossom and Moroccan souk exotica from cumin, tamarind and date scents, wrap their way around some older oak pillars and tangy acidity. The finish is long and nourishing.
On the nose there are complex fruit and rancio qualities. The concentrated, mature nose has a freshness and lift belying an average of more than 20 years.
On the palate the wine is intense and concentrated and quite luscious, with a great richness, texture and mouthfilling flavour. Its excellent and mature spirit add to the depth and intrigue presented by such old, rare tawny.
Just one hour’s drive from South Australia’s capital, Adelaide, lies its gourmet capital (and wine Mecca), Barossa. One of the country’s most beautiful and historic wine regions, Barossa is a magnet for lovers of fine food and wine. Its classic Mediterranean climate, and free-draining red brown soils, makes the region ideal for growing grapes. Barossa produces excellent Shiraz, Cabernet, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Riesling and Semillon.
