Penfolds reveals 2017 collection

Published:  05 October, 2017

One of Australia’s most famous producers is gearing up to release its 2017 collection, including the 2013 Grange - the 63rd consecutive vintage from the label.

The official Penfolds Collection 2017 has been revealed ahead of its release on October 19.

The historic producer has been making wine at the Magill Estate in South Australia since 1844 and releases a collection annually to the global market.

Each wine is “archetypal Penfolds”, the producer said, and demonstrate Penfolds’ house style from across five vintages (2013 to 2017).

This includes the 2013 vintage release of its flagship wine, The Grange, making it the 63rd consecutive vintage to be released from the label.

It is also the last remaining 2013 red to be released from the portfolio and will retail for approximately £575 in select UK stores.

Other parts of the collection feature 2015 Yattarna and the single-region 2016 Bin 311 Tumbarumba Chardonnay - distinctive white wines made by White Winemaker Kym Schroeter.

A number of 2015 reds also feature.

These include the 2015 Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz, which is described as, “A great example of a vintage release that isn’t Cabernet, that isn’t Shiraz …that probably can’t be second-guessed as a Cabernet/Shiraz blend,” said Penfolds chief winemaker Peter Gago.

A selection of wines will also have a new signature bottle bearing historical markings referencing Penfolds’ 173-years of winemaking.
