For over 175 years, three distinct styles have underpinned our winemaking philosophy: single vineyard or single block, single region or sub-region, multi-region, and multi-varietal blending.
Our single vineyard and single block wines are celebrated for their unique terroir and sense of place. These include Magill Estate Shiraz, Kalimna Block 42 Cabernet Sauvignon, Cellar Reserve Kalimna Block 25 Mataro, and Bin 170 Kalimna Shiraz.
Similarly, our wines sourced from a single region or sub-region represent the best of what that region or sub-region can offer. These wines are regarded for their optimised regional character and microclimate variants such as soil, drainage and aspect. Examples include RWT Barossa Valley Shiraz, Bin 128 Coonawarra Shiraz, Reserve Bin A Adelaide Hills Chardonnay, Bin 150 Marananga Shiraz and Bin 23 Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir.
Finally, both multi-region and multi-varietal blending exemplify what Penfolds is best known for from a winemaking perspective – crafting wines to a house style. Penfolds Grange is the original and most powerful expression of this blending philosophy, which results in a consistency of style and quality across vintages. Other examples of this style include Quantum Bin 98, Yattarna, Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz and Grandfather Rare Tawny.
Penfolds Bin 389 2020$ 129.00 Add to cart
Instantly fresh and fleshy. Some overt single-varietal cabernet and shiraz fruits still sit separate …time will unite..
Expected liquorice, stewed plum and blackcurrant, with dark chocolate and mocha in the background. Savoury and salivating – mouth-watering, succulent acidity. This acidity interplays with integrated tannins – coating the mouth and adding length..
Yes, impressive length, with concentration, and a mandatory Bin 389 ‘sweet’ core; oak completely absorbed. Polished and refined..
St. Henri Shiraz 2018$ 149.00 Add to cart
Structural descriptors don’t usually lead the charge for St Henri, but they are certainly faithful to the 2019 vintage.
A fine graphite core. The warmth and creaminess of Mexican sauce with the weight of wild game: venison loin, braised hare.
Eventually sweet custard flavours emerge, smooth and textural. Portuguese tart!
A suggestion of fine salinity aligns with mouth-watering acidity, cleansing.
As always with St Henri, restrained, no need to be showy.
The dark cacoa tannins are so fine they could be spun from silk.
Will age and evolve beautifully for decades.
Penfolds Cellar Reserve Chardonnay 2018$ 89.00 Add to cart
A convincing template of purity, prettiness, delicacy and precision. Fruits of shredded green papaya, white nectarine and a hint of citrus. Meshed with these fruits, steel-cut oats and a light, creamy and savoury edge, finishing with a mouth watering, wet stone/river pebble minerality. This Adelaide Hills Chardonnay vintage structurally conveys a purity and precision overtly left unsatisfied by a single glass!
