Penfolds Great Grandfather Port 750ml
This wine is immensely complex and powerful. The maturation Grandfather style relies on a fuller spirit for fortification and extended small old oak maturation to gain overall complexity and optimum balance.
Great Grandfather Rare Tawny is Penfolds’ rarest wine; only 1000 bottles are available each release. The first release, in 1994, deliberately comprised 1994 bottles.
Origin: Barossa Valley (South Australia).
Maturation: A selection of the very finest and oldest barrels was set aside as components for Grandfather Tawny were made. They were placed in a solero system and each year a limited amount is released.
Variety: All Penfolds tawny styles are created using a core selection of varieties made up of Mourvedre,, Shiraz, Cabernet, and Grenache but are not limited to these varieties.
