You won’t see this wine until late this year but you must be ready to pounce the moment you hear wind of it because the first release of this single vineyard wine sold out in hours last year, there are only a few hundred cases this year – and it’s a better wine. Lovely fruit lift of black plum and dark cherry; finely textured plum-skin-like tannins and nervy acidity; dark chocolate oak sits neatly behind the whole show. It’s only going to get better – as will your mood if you manage to snare a bottle of one of Penfold’s rarest wines!
