Penfolds Club Tawny Port
Port from Australia
Australia's most popular fortified wine is a tawny noted for it's mellowness and consistency. A blend of vintages oak matured at Penfolds' Kalimna cellars, in the Barrossa Valley.
The palate is rich and vibrant displaying ripe spicy fruit, toffee and walnuts framed by smokey oak with a lifted cleansing finish.
Wine Spectator - "Very spicy, sporting caramel, cinnamon and tarry flavors, sweet and silky on the long finish. "
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com - "The Penfolds Club Tawny is a delicious fortified wine. The wine shows aromas and flavors reminiscent of Portos from Portugal. One may not even recognize the difference and could be surprised that this wine is a New World effort. The wine's cream, pruney, and rancio character—rancio is a recognized flavor descriptor that is often found in many Sherries—adds additional nuances that make the wine stand out. Drinks well now, and would be perfect with chocolate mousse or mild cigar. (Tasted: October 31, 2016, San Francisco, CA USA) "
Penfolds Wines Winery
Penfolds has been producing remarkable wines since 1844 and 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 stand-out wines both white and red have been released under the Penfolds masthead.
Peter Gago, Penfolds Chief Winemaker and only the 4th custodian of Grange, relishes the opportunity to bring Penfolds to the world stage and is an enthusiastic ambassador and natural educator. Penfolds came to the attention of the US market when 1990 Grange was Wine Spectator’s ‘Wine of the Year’. Since then, Penfolds Grange has become one of the most collectable wines of the world and was honored to grace the front cover, once again, of Wine Spectator, with declarations of Grange as Australia’s Icon

The state of South Australia, which produces about 60% of the country's wine, also has the most wineries and sub-regions, including McLaren Vale, Clare Valley, Coonawarra and Barossa Valley. New South Wales is home to the Hunter Valley, while the smaller, southern state of Victoria is best known for theYarra Valley. Head way west to the very large state of Western Australia and you'll find the tiny region of Margaret River at the southern tip.

Goes well with desert or cigars.Mihow - West Palm Beach, FL55/24/2014My first Tawny. Great color and smell and a wonderful taste. Had it with ice cream and pie!Scott N - Lowell, MI44/1/2014Very smooth and very drinkable. I'd recommend this one,especially for the price.Tayvl - Arlington, TX47/26/2013Although it was delicious, it was a bit too sweet for my taste, so I blended in some dry Amontillado and hit the jackpot. Will order again (along with another bottle of Amontillado).310/23/2008This is an average port for the value. Expected more but would consider buying again at this price.53/29/2009This is the perfect everyday tawny. Great with cheese/nuts, cigars, or just sipping. To really enjoy the flavor of a good tawny, don't use a port glass - use a brandy snifter with a large bowl. These wines are very aromatic and need to breathe to be fully enjoyed. I find this more enjoyable than most 10 year tawnies, and easily compares to most 20-40 year tawnies I've tried. No brainer for the price.
