Winery Tasting Notes

Essence of citrus, Spring blossom and mandarin/orange steeped in rosewater, it’s all there while further assessment unveils a mineral and chalk-like acid structure that offers a crisp, clean finish.

Food Matching

Dried fruit tart with crème anglaise.

Cellaring Pontential

Drink now and over the next 3 years from its vintage.

Vintage Notes

After average Winter rainfall, Spring brought about very dry weather continuing throughout the Summer months. Extreme weather events with very high day and night temperatures had minor impact while an excellent finish to the ripening season with above average temperatures and dry days were perfect for producing optimum flavour intensity and maturity.

Winemaking Notes

The Penfolds Cellar Reserve labels are based on special vineyards and micro sites, new varieties and innovative vinification practices. They are handcrafted, small batch wines made using techniques that enhance varietal definition and textural qualities.

Viognier is also made in the Barossa as a straight dry white wine and in smaller amounts, as a dessert style wine. Stopping the fermentation process, the Cellar Reserve Viognier is left with residual sugar to produce a sweet, dessert wine style.

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.
