Expert Reviews

Penfolds has itself in a right pickle with the use of the word 'grand', here to denote an average age of not less than 10 years, putting it in the third of four tiers (the highest Rare). The colour is tawny, with no red hues remaining; the super-rich flavours are cut by some rancio, and it is very much in the Australian tawny style, less spirity than the Portuguese equivalents.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Medium tawny with hints of yellow and green at the edge.

Nose

Fragrant and fresh with oak complexity. Toasted nuts, chocolate, raisin plum fruits, clove spice and a distinctive aniseed lift.

Palate

Arguably the most refined wine in Penfolds Tawny portfolio, replete with elegance and power. Exhibiting sweet fruitcake flavours, obvious wood aged complexity and concentration. The finish is fresh with a wonderful balance and lingering intensity.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Australia's winemaking history of less than two hundred years is brief by European measures though, like Europe, punctuated by periods of extreme success and difficult times. From the earliest winemaking days Penfolds has figured prominently and few would argue the importance of Penfolds' influence on Australia's winemaking psyche.

Without the influence of Penfolds the modern Australian wine industry would look very different indeed. Sitting comfortably outside of fad and fashion, Penfolds has taken Australian wine to the world on a grand stage and forged a reputation for quality that is without peer.

Penfolds' reputation for making wines of provenance and cellaring potential might suggest a mantle of tradition and formality is the preferred attire of a company with so much history to defend. But to label Penfolds as simply an established and conventional winemaker, would be to confuse tradition with consideration and to overlook the innovative spirit that has driven Penfolds since its foundation, and continues to find expression in modern times.

If there is anything traditional about Penfolds, it is the practice of constantly reviewing the wines it already does well, and continuously evolving and refining styles as vineyards mature and access to ever older and more varied vineyard sites improves.
