Penfolds; The Legendary Australian Winemaker
At Penfolds, each vintage is created from blends of company owned or grower vineyards depending on where the best fruit is. It's this way of working that elevated the company to the global superstar it is today.
Each Bin number denotes a specific style whether chosen to reflect the terroir of the vineyard, a single region or a house style multi-region blend.
However it's expressed, one thing is certain, the expertise of the creators of Grange goes in to every bottle.
For many wineries a single vineyard expression would be the ultimate sign of quality, for Penfolds the opposite is true.
Grange is the pinnacle of Penfolds winemaking, some may even say of Australian winemaking. Since the first vintage in 1951, initially no more than just an experiment, a blend of the best Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon has gone into Grange.
Such is Penfolds importance to the fabric of Australian winemaking that it even has a place in the National Trust of South Australia.
