Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep, bright magenta; black core.

Nose

Firstly, a burst of curry and Indian spices ... and caraway, cardamom, celeriac.

Then:

The sweet - rich, coffee-grind, mocha, chocolate-cake, a brioche egginess; fresh sweet oak.

The savoury - roasted fat, crackling, rendered beef jus.

The subliminal – almost a virtual dust cloud of sprinkled ‘icing sugar’ hovering above.

Palate

Lifted, fresh. Avec acuity, focus.

Unabashed regional flavours of blackberry/raspberry/juniper coalesce with those of a more-than-likely choco/oak derivation.

A formic/V.A. ‘pulse’ combines with powdery tannins… massaged by lively acidity. A potent structural/textural statement indeed!

At time of tasting/writing, the blend’s French oak maturation contribution appears more obvious than that from America. Waiting…

Drinking well now, but will improve with time. Drinking window 2018 - 2030.

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.
