Established in 1844, Penfolds is perhaps Australia's most iconic and well-known wine producer. From humble beginnings at Magill Estate through to international accolade, Penfolds is a chapter all to itself in the Australian wine story. Their flagship wine, Grange, is still Australia's default Most Premium And Fancy Wine while their tiers of Bin Range wines continue to captivate wine drinkers and collectors.
They are one of the longest living, continuously produced wine brands in Australia and hold their heritage up high. Traditional winemaking, careful vineyard selection and a curation of some of Australia's oldest vines make Penfold's the mainstay winery it is today. Names like Kalimna, Bin 28, Baby Grange, Thomas Hyland and Magill have all worked their way into wine vernacular from brands created by Penfold's legacy of winemakers.
While red wines have been their stronghold, as bold and full flavoured and sourced from ancient vines as they are, their white wine collection has caught up in leaps and bounds in recent years. Premium Chardonnay's hold their heads up high with some of Australia's finest and quality is offered at the lower price points
Authenticity and history are important selling points for many brands and Penfold's certainly have this in spades. Drink a little history; go on, it tastes great.
