Penfolds Grandfather 20 Year Old Rare Tawny in luxury presentation box 75cl 20% ABV
Penfolds Grandfather 20 Year Old Rare Tawny, South Australia
The Grandfather name dates to 1915, when an oak cask containing the finest blend of available Tawny material was set aside for the exclusive use of the Penfold family. This wine was known as the Grandfather due to the age of the oldest Tawny in the blend.
With a core selection of Cabernet, Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz, Grandfather Rare Tawny sources fruit from vineyards specifically selected for fortified wine production.
Deep tawny with a distinctive yellow-green edge, characteristic of extended wood maturation. On the nose, raisin, fruitcake, liquorice, roasted walnuts are all seamlessly integrated. The palate boasts classic Penfolds fruitcake, alongside liquorice and oak flavours with a sweet and round mid palate. A persistent finish.
Perfect paired with stilton or gorgonzola. With a minimum average blended age of 20 years, Grandfather Rare Tawny can be kept for cellaring but is blended to drink on release.
