Winemaker's Notes:

Colour: Deep youthful crimson red.

Bouquet: Mulberry and blueberry fruits are interlaced with hints of spicy oak, licorice, and eucalyptus. Rich fruitcake notes and chocolate are framed within the lifted berry fruit of Coonawarra.

Palate: Fleshy small berry and plum fruit flavours are harmoniously laced with savoury notes. Fine tannins, subtle oak, and a long finish enhance a generous mouthfeel.

About Penfolds Wines:

Founded by a young, English doctor in 1844, Penfolds has been producing remarkable wines that have changed the landscape of Australian winemaking. Over the past century, Penfolds has indisputably led the development of Australian fine wine in the modern era. The introduction of Penfolds Grange in 1951 forever changed the landscape of Australian fine wine. Since then, a series of standout wines, both white and red, have been released under the Penfolds masthead. Under the direction of master winemaker, Peter Gago, Penfolds is now found in every major wine market in the country. Extraordinary wines such as Block 42 and Bin 60A have also been released during his tenure. Penfolds wines are now widely celebrated for their diversity and quality across many price-points. The strength of Penfolds is that the wine comes first. Penfolds' range of table wines is utterly Australian, evoking a generosity of spirit and the beauty of the Australian landscape.
