A signature expression within the Penfolds fortified collection of wines, Club Reserve is a definitive aged ‘Classic’ Tawny with a minimum average blended age between five and ten years.
Rich in fruit and intensity– hallmarks of the Penfolds Tawny style – Club Reserve is crafted to be enjoyed on release, alongside the other members of the Penfolds fortified collection.
Since 1985 Penfolds has been identifying the best barrels of Club Tawny and reserving them for additional maturation. These reserve barrels are then skilfully blended to create Penfolds Club Reserve Classic Tawny, with the additional ageing adding further complexity and concentration of flavours.
Fragrant and well-integrated, possessing aromas of raisined fruit, caramel, subtle vanillin oak and nutty aged complexity.
Luscious fruit sweetness balanced by drier barrel-matured characters and subtle spirit. The wine has rich flavours of spicy dried fruit, butterscotch and walnuts before a long, lingering finish.
Origin: Multi-regional blend, South Australia.
Maturation: Individual components are given extended maturation in very old hogsheads for five to ten years before blending to create a consistent style with each release.
Variety: A core selection of Mataro (Mourvedre), Shiraz, Cabernet, and Grenache (but not limited to these varieties).
