Most of the older Penfolds blocks in Coonawarra were planted from 1965 to 1972.
Penfolds original plantings comprised close to 50ha in Coonawarra.
Most of Penfolds' low yielding blocks of cabernet sauvignon and shiraz are harvested from late March to early April. The cool growing season promotes a long, slow ripening which enhances complex tannin and flavour development.
Mainly cabernet sauvignon and shiraz.
